In the latest episode of Angel Insights, host Harry Stebbings interviews Simon Thorpe.
Simon is an active angel investor in UK companies with a focus on the technology sector. His current portfolio consists of 20 companies and to date he has achieved four exits, including that of SwiftKey to Microsoft.
‘Exits… are very much like London buses,’ Simon says. ‘Nothing happens for a period of time, and then they all come at once.’
Simon is also a member of Cambridge Capital Group (CCG) and Angel Academe (a predominately female network), where he serves on the advisory board. He participates as a mentor for the University of Manchester, Cambridge Judge Business School’s Accelerate Cambridge programme and Angel Academe’s female entrepreneur programme.
