Gursh Mendhir

I am a Principal in the Innovation team at True, Europe’s leading sector-specialist advisory & investment firm. As a B-Corp, True has helped over 25 household brands – like Marks & Spencer, 7-Eleven and Fortnum & Mason – to navigate changing trends, like sustainability, and use emerging technologies for competitive advantage. We provide tailored insights, including how to use emerging technology to unlock bottom-line efficiencies and top-line growth whilst considering the planet and the community, and scout best-in-class technology startups, many with sustainability use cases. Our unparalleled vantage point is a product of our cutting-edge knowledge and ever-expanding network spanning the whole capital spectrum. We leverage our venture capital team’s deal flow, market insights and investment judgment, and we have tested several emerging technologies in our private equity portfolio companies.

Before True, I built Virgin Media O2’s digital innovation department and, together with my team, spearheaded the company’s foray beyond telco, by creating a new consumer product portfolio. I started my career in strategy consulting and corporate venturing at Monitor Deloitte and Deloitte Ventures, respectively.

I am passionate about using emerging technology as a catalyst to meaningfully address intractable challenges, including sustainability.
