After almost three years, eventually acting as Head of Investment and Marketing, Freya moved into partnerships, working with start up founder community, The Founding Network and development partner Deazy, before joining the Ascension team.

When not in work mode, Freya can be found cooking up a storm for her friends, trying to improve at life drawing or painting and looking for her next travelling adventure.
