Hero of the month - Lord Howard Flight

There are so many ways Howard Flight has helped the angel and early stage investment industry that listing them would fill up several pages.  One of the original financial services entrepreneurs as the one of the founders of Guinness Flight which was sold to Investec, he has also been a very active angel investor for years.  It is little known that even today he hands out, without strings, advice and support to entrepreneurs when many with his age and experience would have hung up their boots to enjoy a more leisurely lifestyle.  A coffee with Howard is worth a dozen lunches with others if you want to get your business moving.  

 

Howard has also acted as the sane and solid bridge between our world and Westminster, particularly since he was enobled by David Cameron in 2011.  As Chairman of the EIS Association he has been invaluable in keeping issues in the minds of ministers who might otherwise fail to understand the importance of the angel and VC industry to the UK economy.  It is because he is selfless in his interest that he is so effective at promoting the industry.  Howard never asks but only gives - I am proud to call him a friend.
