Entrepreneur and impact tech angel investor.
Most recently I was backing early stage tech companies across the UK & Europe with Innovation Nest. Now I am working on a few ideas, and making angel investments into impact tech companies.
I have a passion for tech and have co-founded several companies: MediaCore (education technology, sold to Workday inc), Pusher (realtime messaging) and New Bamboo (web agency, sold to thoughtbot inc).
My wife (@zerowastesussex) and I do our best to have a zero waste household. Reducing our single use plastic and recycling to the extreme.
My interests include:☁️ Web, mobile tech and Software as a Service (SaaS).🤖 AI, deep learning and computer vision.🏫 EdTech and access to education and knowledge.♻️ Environment and green energy causes and technology.✈️ UAV/drones and electric aircraft.
