James started a tech business with friends at university at the age of 20, went onto two accelerator programmes (Ignite and Seedcamp), raised $1 million in Angel/VC money, and grew his team and product to relative scale.

At peak, our suite of mobile/web products were used by 130 websites, generating more than 50 million monthly pageviews and $10,000 in monthly recurring online advertising revenue. His team consisted of around eight people in Newcastle and London.

James now works with Potential VC, where his team manages Europe’s largest and most active AngelList syndicate. He executes early-stage investments in the UK via the syndicate and explores avenues for expansion.

James is also the Founder and CEO of advertising-for-mobile-phones company Now Native.
