For all the latest news and views from across the angel and early-stage investment sector, plus info and discounts for our industry leading events.
Mark is a talented and highly personable individual and a mainstay of the London early stage venture capital scene. With an 18 year track record of investing ranging from London Business Angels in the early days, through his time at YFM and, since its inception, at Seraphim Capital, he holds a great reputation for achieving positive returns for his investors which include HM Government through the Seraphim ECF. He knows how to spot an opportunity and drive an investment through to exit, but remains pretty humble about his success which is attractive. A primary focus at the moment is the fundraising he is undertaking for The Space Fund, one of the most innovative funds in the market at the moment and, if the word on the street is right, is getting a lot of interest from serious angel investors.
It's worth a shout out about James Bruegger who works closely with Mark at Seraphim. James has a wealth of experience in venture investing having been at Seraphim with 20 investments under his belt across many tech sectors.
