At Artemis

After joining Artemis in 2011, James’ vision, commitment to growing through repeatable and scalable systems, and passion for building businesses has driven Artemis to new heights. As a Managing Partner, his responsibilities include the development of the firm’s industrial tech professionals, architecting internal structures, and the execution of Artemis’ fund-level strategies.

It is impossible to truly understand the awesome responsibility of owning a business until you've stood in front of a hundred people and informed them of ownership transition. In that moment, it's our job to reassure them that we won't screw up what made the company great in the first place."
