Joining the team as Entrepreneur in Residence in 2019 to support the investees in MSP's VC tech fund, Mark brings more than 20 years of entrepreneurial and startup business experience to the team.


Mark is the founder/co-founder of multiple technology companies, including IT Managed Services, internet technology, social apps, and most recently software and services for the hospitality sector. His Tapendium guest services software is used in luxury hotels around the world including Crown Resorts and Sofitel in Australia and the iconic Fullerton Hotels in Singapore.

Having exited businesses via ASX listing, market sale, acqui-hire (and a couple of not so lucrative learning experiences), Mark provides a wealth of experience for startup entrepreneurs to lean on.

As a hands-on CTO, product developer, network engineer, part-time software developer and Amazon Web Services expert, Mark also provides some unique technical expertise to the team.

In his spare time Mark is experimenting with task and building automation using the Alexa voice service, with an eye on an under-served small hotel market.
