Entrepreneurial Management

Entrepreneur & investor; currently teaching entrepreneurship at HBS.

Inspired by a trip to Pisa, Greg left leading venture capital firm Index Ventures in 2009 to start onefinestay, a pioneering luxury hospitality business that lets travellers enjoy hotel services in beautiful homes while the owners are out of town.

Having scaled to a team of over 700 across several international hubs, the company was acquired by AccorHotels in 2016 in a deal worth more than $250m. Following its acquisition Greg stepped down as CEO and Chairman after seven years at the helm.

Previously, Greg worked on the technology investment team at Index Ventures, and headed product at b2b marketplace start-up GF-X.

Greg sits on several boards including APCOA, Europe's largest car park operator, and pioneering organic baby food business, Pumpkin. In 2017, he was elected to the International Board of Amnesty International, where he also chairs the Remuneration Committee.

In October 2017, Greg joined the faculty at Harvard Business School, affiliated with the Entrepreneurial Management Unit, where he teaches the required first year MBA course on entrepreneurship. He is also a Visiting Professor at Imperial College Business School.

Greg was a co-author of the 2017 Taylor review of modern working practices, commissioned by the British Prime Minister.

A Londoner by birth, Greg has an MA in philosophy from Christ’s College, Cambridge, and attended Harvard Business School on a Fulbright Scholarship where he earned his MBA with high distinction and was twice named Ford Scholar, graduating top of his class.
