👋 I’m Elliot Padfield, an entrepreneur & investor.
📈Most people know me for running my advertising agency, Padfield Media which works with high-growth brands to acquire customers using TikTok ads.
🤝 Working with founders is my passion & I regularly invest in and advise early-stage technology startups.
🛒 I’ve built and acquired a number of direct-to-consumer e-commerce brands.
🏡 I’m British but currently spend most of my time in London, UK & Los Angeles, USA.
✈️ Dubai, New York City, & Ft. Lauderdale have all been my home at various points too.
If you represent a, my team at Padfield Media would be happy to help.

I’ve consulted and advised in a number of settings on GTM, marketing strategy, & social media.
Please contact me if you are interested.
I’m a passionate value-add investor writing checks from $5k to $100k in pre-seed & seed-stage startups.
Here’s the info you need:
🧑 I always look at the founders first. Founders who inspire me & build trust are the ones I invest in. Solo founders are just as great as teams. I look for examples of how you’ve demonstrated skills rather than experience for experience’s sake.
💬 Companies should be in a position for me to add significant value. I’m a firm believer that investors should deserve their allocation. Unless I can see a clear path for me to provide a unique value-add other investors can’t offer, the company isn’t for me.
💳 Companies must be capital efficient. A clear monetization model or path exit should be present even when other elements of strategy are undeveloped.
🕕 I invest early. Early in companies (usually the first raise) and early in the round.
👋 Warm intros are great (it’s an easy way to prove you know how to build relationships) but I consider cold pitches with equal gravity.
