Troy joined KPMG Acceleris as a Deals Execution Analyst after graduating with a 1st Class Honours degree in Business Management from Lancaster University. His focus within the team is triaging high growth early-stage fundraising opportunities with a particular passion for Blockchain applications and space enabled technology.
Prior to joining the team Troy worked alongside the UK Space Agency to investigate the opportunity of utilising Blockchain technology paired with terrestrial satellite architecture to live stream black box data from aircraft on demand. Troy believes the space sector will be an area of huge growth for the UK over the next decade and is excited to spot venture opportunities within this area.
In his personal time, Troy is an avid adventurer completing survival camps with the likes of wildlife TV personality Steve Backshall, and became the only person in the UK to achieve every scout badge including the Queens Scout Award back in 2019. Some of the highlights include designing UK Astronaut Tim Peake’s mission patch that he wore on the International Space Station, leading a team on a two-week expedition in The Rockies, New Mexico and receiving a Diana Award for inspiring young people in Scouting to develop new skills and personal goals.
