I was very pleased to be an investor panelist at the CJBS Enterprise Tuesday 22 May '18 : Friendly-ish "Dragons' Den".

Here we share a link to Business Weekly's latest article: Start-up Spotlight – in association with Invested Investor.

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.
