Sajid joined Maven in January 2018 and is based in our Birmingham office. His responsibilities include deal origination, execution and managing portfolio investments across the region. He also overlooks the management of MEIF’s Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS) and Recovery Loan Scheme (RLS). Although Sajid is focused on MEIF debt funding investments he also scouts for early-stage technology orpportunities in the region that may fit the investment remit of Maven’s VCT funds.
Prior to joining Maven, Sajid spent six years working in Corporate Finance at Grant Thornton and Orbis Partners, both based in Birmingham. During his time in Corporate Finance he was involved in executing mid-market M&A transactions across various sectors with a focus on TMT and advising SMEs in raising development capital.
Sajid holds an MSc in Finance and Management from Loughborough University Business School.
When he’s not busy watching Manchester United on the weekends, Sajid enjoys travelling, golfing (not as often as I like) and getting involved in charity work.
It excites me meeting the management teams of SMEs from a wide range of sectors, understanding their business models and what makes them tick. What I find most rewarding is seeing at first hand how Maven’s investment supports an SME to realise its growth plans.
