  • Bio

    Simon joined NPX Capital in 2019 and focuses on early stage venture capital investing. He is passionate about helping entrepreneurs fulfil their dreams, empowering them to build game-changing businesses. With experience as both an entrepreneur and operator, he provides hands-on assistance to numerous startups globally.

    Prior to NPX, Simon founded Cypher, a global blockchain accelerator, and was with Bluepoint Partners, where he invested in early stage startups across consumer, education, digital media, commerce, and fintech in the US and Korea.

    Before entering the world of startup investing, Simon spent ten years in product management, leading some of the sharpest engineers and designers across LA and Silicon Valley’s top startups, including Viant (acquired by Time) and Chegg (IPO). Prior to that, he spent two years in investment banking at Jefferies, advising on transactions over $1.2 billion.

    Simon studied Economics as an undergraduate at Harvard, where some of his best memories were off-campus: teaching both underprivileged children from Cambridge and inmates at a county jail.
