Originally, our plan was to set up our office and future life in London. However, everything changed when Rina and I arrived in Cambridge. Immersing ourselves in this new environment, we unexpectedly fell in love with the city. Cambridge isn’t just a place to live; it has become a source of inspiration and comfort in both our personal and professional lives.

This city, with its blend of comfort, warmth, and convenience, has started to feel like home. It’s more than just a location; it’s a community that nurtures and energises us. As a 40-year-old serial entrepreneur, I’ve found a unique vibrancy and excellence here that resonates with my journey.

Cambridge Judge Business School (CJBS) has become a frequent destination in my routine. It’s a place that fuels my entrepreneurial spirit and connects me to a world of innovation and learning. Moreover, being appointed as the Partners’ Chair at CJBS is a privilege that allows me to share the joy and fulfilment I’ve found here. This role not only offers me an opportunity to contribute but also makes this year exceptionally meaningful and exciting. Cambridge isn’t just a city we moved to; it’s a community we’ve become a part of, and I eagerly look forward to what lies ahead in this journey.
