Networks

Tell everyone a little about yourself.

Married with two boys. Interested in great user experiences, cool gadgets, good coffee, playing drums with @solidstateradi0, keeping chickens and building up my ever shrinking collection of fine rums.

Are you currently running a tech company or looking to form one? Tell us about that!

I'm CEO of TheFilter.com which optimises digital services in both media and retail through personalised search, content & communication.

Which tech companies have you been involved with in the past?

Currently The Filter. Previously OD2, Nokia Music, Eden Ventures (VC), 1Drive (sold the name to Microsoft!), We7 (now Tesco's Blinkbox Music), AXMEDIS (Florence, Italy), Basekit as well as some technically minded financial services companies like Novia Financial and Ebury Partners and some non-tech ones.

Introduction

I started South West Founders as I wanted to build a network of entrepreneurial peers in Bristol & Bath. I love being involved with start-ups. I've started, worked for and worked with quite a few. I've also spent time in the world of Venture Capital.
