Philip Wilkinson

Entrepreneur and angel investor

The best way to Philip is as a Serial Web Entrepreneur, Angel Investor, and explorer of new, world-changing ideas.

When Philip was 21 years old by building the UK's first ever price comparison site called Shopgenie in 1998, by learning coding every morning and evening while on the bus to my old job. After securing £150k of investment, and building a great team, Shopgenie merged with the French company Kelkoo back in 2000which was ultimately sold to Yahoo in 2004.

Philip co-founded a small venture business based that invested in and grew businesses such as BroadbandGenie, Crowdstorm (long tail price comparison), and Kopi (coffee subscription club).

Philip is also a co-founder and product director of a high end group buying site called Keynoir.com which secured funding from Index Ventures back in 2010.
