Ed zooms in from cosy West London, where, from his leading position as one of the best and friendliest UK VC investors, he tells us the over-riding good news, that the UK Series A scene is hot to trot. He also divulges and treats us to snippets about life during lockdown, things are moving more quickly, the magic of Albion and what’s driving their exciting start to 2021 and continuation of their successful 2020.
Ed provides astute opinions on Ed-Tech, the Future Fund, the emergence of US investors in the UK, the immense successes of the UCL Technology Fund in the Life Sciences, AI. Quantum Computing space and the wider fund in Enterprise Data space. Tips are provided for budding Fundstars and Foundstars too!
He like most of us longs for the return of normalised living and to be able to venture back to his beloved Groucho Club, his favourite social haunt in London, where he can inflict his new found skills of Jazz piano, learnt on-line in lockdown, to any unfortunate listeners (like Chris, a fellow member)!
