Ladi Greenstreet has departed from Irish-American consultancy Accenture’s corporate venturing unit and will join NatWest next month to make strategic investments for the British retail bank.

Alongside his new role, Greenstreet will continue to lead diversity and inclusion initiatives through his involvement in impact investing firms Diversity VC, where he is chief executive, and Cultural Capital.

Accenture Ventures’ parent firm hired Greenstreet in 2011 as a management consultant, before transferring him to the CVC arm shortly after its launch in 2015.

Greenstreet initially assumed the head of healthcare position in New York, and he led growth-stage digital health investments covering areas such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, blockchain, cybersecurity, software development, and augmented and virtual reality.

In mid-2019, Greenstreet moved to Accenture Ventures’ London office as head of UK and Ireland and was tasked with open innovation activities for the two countries.

During his final four years at the unit, Greenstreet briefly took on additional responsibilities as head of European strategic investments for almost two years from late 2019 to focus on European startups. Global Corporate Venturing included Greenstreet on its Emerging Leaders 2022 roster.

“As I embark on this new path, I am eager to embrace technology to raise median wealth across the nation and enable individuals, families and businesses to thrive,” said Greenstreet in an email.
