Business Weekly has introduced a new series featuring entrepreneurs involved with the new Invested Investor initiative launched by Alan and Peter Cowley. Invested Investor is designed to increase the success of early stage startups by sharing angel investor and entrepreneur war stories.

In the first of the series, Simon Thorpe, UKBAA Business Angel of the Year in 2016/17, explains via Q & A why he is inspired by Elon Musk and Martha Lane Fox. Simon has an investment portfolio of close to 30 early stage technology companies and has achieved five exits including Swiftkey, CMOS Sensors, VocalIQ and CentraStage.

He has made a career out of his passion for backing aspiring entrepreneurs creating innovative disruptive technologies. 

 

Simon was delighted to support Peter with the Invested Investor initiative; which is publishing online and offline content to help educate angels and entrepreneurs to prevent mistakes and produce more successful exits. 

Here we share their latest podcast 'The Digital Invested Investor' where Simon describes his angel investment journey. He also talks about several topics including the digital economy and the importance of STEM.
