Samantha Ling

Samantha joined Octopus Ventures in 2008, back when we were still establishing our first funds. She’s now head of operations and head of fund formation, and leads our investor relations.

This includes managing various stakeholders for the funds we manage, and overseeing a wide range of investment and portfolio processes.

She’s worked lots with international teams and clients, and has led and implemented global sales and support processes and tech projects at companies like broker PVM Oil and registrar and classification society Det Norske Veritas, and a major charity.

Samantha says: “I still get excited every day about the teams and businesses we back, helping and watching them grow, and the people I get to work with as part of that.”

Outside of work, you can find her exploring the world and squeezing in as much time with her dog as possible, plus great food, live music, theatre, gym classes and weightlifting.
