Natasha Lytton

Follow Natasha Lytton on Facebook, Twitter or Linkedin.

Spoiler title
I run marketing and comms at Seedcamp, working on the Seedcamp brand itself and as a support to our portfolio companies on everything from defining brand purpose, to growth strategies and the art of creative storytelling. I love working with companies to build a meaningful relationship between brands and people and believe very strongly that great purpose, strong culture and unique positioning is key to building a brand that will go the distance. After graduating with an MA in French and Spanish from Oxford University, I spent a number of years across global agencies and in-house roles specialising in comms and strategic planning before making the jump over to startup land; a decision I’ve never looked back on. Along with a number of freelance gigs, I’ve held full-time CMO roles at consumer-focused businesses in the food tech and FMCG sectors. I understand the growing pains that come with joining an early-stage company as well as how much needs to be done as one of the first marketing hires. I thrive off of the hustle and making things grow, something I achieved successfully at Savse building the brand into the UK’s fastest selling smoothie company. When not talking about how to market your startup, you can find me eating and drinking my way around London, lifting weights at Barry’s Bootcamp, singing incessantly or dancing my way into the day at Morning Gloryville.

Steph Rady

Head of Marketing and PR @ Angels Media

Follow Steph Rady on Facebook, Twitter or Linkedin.

Spoiler title
Steph first joined Angels back in January 2014 and worked as an Account Manager and Head of Social Media. After two years, she moved on to work in-house for a London based estate agency as their Marketing Manager. With plenty of marketing experience and knowledge to turn to, she has now rejoined us as the Head of Marketing and PR. Graduating from Bath Spa University with a Drama and English degree under her belt, Steph also won an award for Marketing at The Wharf Property Awards in 2017. When she’s not at work, she can be found at the theatre or supporting comedy acts (and indulging in some cookies when no-one’s looking). Cats, cats, kittens and cats are her favourite things in life, while she dislikes – you guessed it – people who don’t like cats. If she won a trip abroad to any destination, Steph would catch the sun and waves in Hawaii, accompanied by a cocktail – or two! Learn more about Steph Rady on Crunchbase…
