Managing Partner
The Sandpit

Warwick maths graduate Xavier de Lecaros-Aquise set up his first start-up straight out of University having already built up a stellar history of investment banking internships at the likes of Citigroup, HSBC, PWC, E&Y, to name a few. He then joined a Venture Capital boutique buying and selling European tech start-ups in the mobile, hardware, online retail and digital media space, eventually leading the UK digital media efforts for the bank. Xavier then left his comfy job to go at it again, this time co-founding award winning fashion rental e-tailer GirlMeetsDress.com which he exited in 2014. He then proceeded to help launch MarleySpoon in over 5 geographies with his former investors, and then acted as interim management for various VC backed growth companies like Edited.com, Seedcamp, etc. He is now Head of New Businesses, Innovation and Operations at Aviva Plc.
