Ifti is Fuse’s CCO and Co-Founder, Ifti oversees the development of the origination function and commercial strategies of a company. Ifti and Russell bootstrapped a start-up & grew it to a multi-million-pound company, which they then sold to a private equity firm, along the way they learnt some hard lessons about financing growth. Ifti saw first-hand the lack of debt options available to scale-ups compared to the US. In particular, he was frustrated by banks’ lack of understanding of & appetite for the tech space. Consequently, he decided to use his experience to relieve fellow entrepreneurial CEO’s & CFO’s growing pains & help them to get to the next level. Along with Russell, they founded Fuse Capital.
