Courtney joined the early-stage investment team in June 2022 following an internship in the origination team. Alongside working at Active, Courtney is currently pursuing an MBA at London Business School and will graduate in summer 2023. She is particularly interested in food sustainability and the importance of offering healthy, affordable, and attainable products to a mass market.

Prior to moving to London, she lived and worked in New York City where she was a consultant for Accenture Strategy. At Accenture she worked with multi-national consumer businesses on projects focused on pricing strategy, organizational design and marketing analytics.

At London Business School, Courtney is the co-president of the Entrepreneurship Club and helps run the school’s pre-accelerator programme. When Courtney’s not meeting with incredible consumer founders, you can find her training in Regent’s Park or cooking up a vegan meal for her friends.

At Active, I love that we can reshape the consumer economy through supporting incredible founders and challenger brands. There is an immense amount of opportunity to improve the consumer space, and I think we have only scratched the surface!
