Scottish venture capital expert Hazel Cameron is lending her skills to US-based VC firm Cross Atlantic Capital Partners, which is on the look out for technology investment opportunities in Scotland. The firm has recently set up an office in Edinburgh and will be working closely with Cross Atlantic’s bases in Philadelphia, London and Dublin. Cross Atlantic is looking at opportunities UK-wide and the new office will give the firm a good insight into what the Scottish market is like.
Cameron gained her experience with 3i and has backed successes such as Orbital, Kymata and Indigo Vision. Most recently she headed the Edinburgh office of Silicon Valley technology investor, Bowman Capital who last year closed its venture capital business worldwide to focus on its core business in the public hedge fund sector. This left Cameron’s Edinburgh office no other option than to close down. She retains her position on the board of Bowman portfolio company Tao Group, a Reading-based software developer.
