As an Associate at Active, Summa focuses on sourcing new deals, diligence of potential investments, deal execution and portfolio company support. He is particularly interested in sustainability, culturally disruptive consumer products, food and marketplaces. Originally hailing from Australia, Summa started his career as a generalist consultant at McKinsey, working on organisational design, corporate strategy and commercial diligence projects across TMT, banking, retail and consumer sectors.

After moving to London in 2020, he joined materials science start-up PANGAIA where he led strategy and analytics. Summa is a lover of the outdoors, so in his free time you’ll either find him running around Victoria Park or on the tennis court.

I love working with passionate founders everyday who have an ambition to build a brand that will change broader consumer culture, the way we live and how we find enjoyment.
