About Nick

I have spent 40+ years in technology, and have a primary background in computer science with more than 10 start ups behind me. I have worked on PLC boards, run large P&Ls, as Global Sales leader and have served as CEO of a Regulated Financial Services business. I serve as Non Exec Chair of a Quantum Computing company in stealth mode (focusing on quantum safe infrastructure), a director/shareholder of Crix Holdings that operate two Regulated Secondary Market trading exchanges in Malta and Wyoming, a next generation AI driven algorithmic trading platform in New York. My passion projects include Exec Producer of a new TV Series about the existential threat of AI, a series I have written and produced. I enjoy delivering keynotes at the worlds largest investor events including AIM Congress. I speak on the subject of Deep Tech Investing and was part of the LSE team that put together the Blockchain and Crypto currency course in 2017.

I like to speak at academic institutions that have included MIT and Harvard. In February 2019 I was honoured to be appointed to advise the South Korea government on the introduction of a new national digital currency. I have almost finished a new book on Why Decentralised Operating Models always outperform Centralised Models? I hope to publish in 2020. I work alongside Familiy Offices and UHNW advising them on tech investing specifically understanding Artificial Intelligence, Quantum Mechanics and Computing,, NanoTech, Biotech, EdTech, AgriTech, Longevity, BioTech, AR and VR, Edge & Grid Computing, Living Implants, BioFuels etc...
