Nicky Deasy is Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Yield Lab Europe, overseeing the day to day operations. This includes raising capital, dealing with the limited partners and investors, maintaining and managing a deal pipeline, running the due diligence process and coordinating investments into portfolio companies. She also works to establish accelerator programming and supports those companies with financial mentoring, commercial mentoring and scaling support and overall fund management.

Previously Deasy served for 7 years as associate director at KPMG Corporate Finance in Dublin, where she ran the food and beverage M&A team before moving to Ernst & Young to set up a corporate finance practice for EY’s regional offices as director of corporate finance. After 5 years in that role, Deasy left to run her own corporate finance practice. She was a mentor to the EI HPSU, through which she assisted companies going to market to raise equity. She has worked with many early-stage companies across a variety of sectors to raise seed and Series A equity capital, having advised on rounds totaling hundreds of millions of dollars over her 20-year career. She has extensive links with the venture capital and business communities in both Dublin and Galway, Ireland.

Deasy graduated at the top of her class from Trinity College Dublin with a bachelor’s degree in business in 1995, and she came in fifth place in Ireland in the finals of the chartered accountancy exams in 1999.
