Chris Knaup

Background and expertise

Chris originally completed a first class engineering degree from the University of Sheffield, during which he spent a year abroad at the National University of Singapore. His undergraduate degree also included a 12 month placement with GE Aviation, resulting in a growing preference for a business focused role rather than a purely technical one. Chris subsequently graduated, with distinction, from the University of Bristol with a MSc in Economics, Finance & Management and went on to spend a year in PwC’s Deals Valuations team in London.

Whilst completing his dissertation, Chris worked at the University of Cambridge’s Centre for Alternative Finance, where he focused on researching various European crowdfunding markets and competed at the European Debating Championships in Estonia. This broad and varied background allows Chris to effectively merge a company’s technical value proposition to its financial insights. Additionally, having attended school and university in Europe and Asia, he is fluent in Dutch and English, as well as conversational in Spanish.

After work

Chris is looking to gain his full motorbike license and is aiming to complete the 2019 London Marathon, whilst fundraising for a mental health charity. In his downtime, Chris is also unashamedly ploughing through a season of House of Cards.
