Hero of the Month - David Cummings

In an industry where it is all too common for venture capitalists not just to think, but to say "what is in it for me" and for angels to stay under the radar, David Cummings is a breath of fresh air. The very model of a modern investor, David has been angel investing for years, but remains consistently charming and decent. He is straightforward and generous with his time and expertise and will always go out of his way to help.  He is a vociferous angel investor, associated most closely with Cambridge Angels which has given him an unrivalled knowledge of angel investing. If he is in a deal, the chances are you should be too. 


Prior to Draper Esprit, David worked at Lazard where he was the Managing Director running the TMT group in London. He was also at KPMG and IMI. The mixture of accounting and technology backgrounds certainly shows in his investment decisions.
