I am 35 years old and a very successful private investor and Venture capitalist based in London. I have, in the last 5 years, invested in 24 start up tech companies and generated significant ROI. In terms of investing, I believe in careful market and business analysis before I invest and to date, I have never lost money on any investment I have made. I do not call myself an expert, I just know what works for me. I am also into many other things from breeding horses ( an peacocks ) through to purchasing businesses and turning them around and selling them on again. I am also ( Oct 2012 ) in the process of purchasing a 15th century castle and turning it into a luxury hotel/retreat with two other partners. My business interests are very diverse and in my non-business life I also breed Andalusian Horses, and a part owner of a very successful wine bar with one of my sisters and am helping my younger sister develop a strong property portfolio.
