Thomas Sugar

With a career starting out in banking and finance, from UBS and Bear Stearns, I have a solid understanding of the corporate world from an international angle, with experience leading and managing cross-cultural teams and building effective business relationships. As my career progressed, I moved into business development and innovation and have continued in this direction, taking a more hands on approach, working with global start-up businesses and innovation projects, as well as founding my own companies. I am an adaptable and diverse leader, with experience working cross departmentally to lead and develop individuals, projects and operational performance on an international scale. As a Mentor for Copenhagen Fintech and Director for Open Entrepreneurship at DTU, Technical University of Denmark, I use my skills and experience to explore innovative opportunities, pair businesses with relevant researchers to create innovative spinouts, and coach start-up organisations to develop their businesses.
