Philip Ammerman Consultant Digital Transformation Investment Led Growth

About Me

I am a consultant, entrepreneur and investment specialist who has advised financial institutions, governments and enterprises on digital disruption, internationalisation, internationalisation, and investment-led growth since 1994.


I started my consultancy career in 1994, one year prior to the launch of Netscape web browser and the start of the Web 1.0 boom. A key focus was advising start-ups on fundraising, and investors on due diligence in tech start-ups. I supported the first wave of disruption in sectors such as banking and travel between 1995 and 2000, when the first crash took place.


In parallel, I advised on “real economy” investments, primarily in industry and manufacturing, that took place in Greece, Central & Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. I have worked on over 140 investment transactions with a total investment value exceeding € 6 billion.



Although we didn't see it at the time, 1995 saw the launch of Netscape Navigator, the world's first real web browser. This kicked off a massive revolution in the digital world. I remember showing a group of travel agents in 1996 how a tourists could start researching a destination, or a hotel. Digital transformation is at the core of my work. 


In 2010, we launched the Navigator Entrepreneurship Charter, a commitment to support one start-up or spin-off a year between 2010 and 2020. This has commitment has unified our technical work as consultants with the digital world we work in, and has led to a major change in my life.  

Investment-Led Growth

A key focus since starting my career has been investment-led growth. I work at different stages of the investment cycle: from investment screening and modelling, to due diligence and structuring, to post-investment support. This includes mergers & acquisitions and organisational restructuring. It's not all about numbers.
