Thias Martin

I am a strategist, collaborator and communicator who delights in delivering tangible and practical solutions to help businesses and entrepreneurs scale effectively.

I have combined an arts and business background to develop an entrepreneurial consulting and teaching practice around supporting businesses and students in creative disciplines. Over the last couple of years this has been in New York and before that was in London where I was the co-founder and co-director of the University of London’s pioneering Centre for Creative Collaboration which advised, supported and mentored over 300 early stage businesses in the creative industries.
