Seed investments in entrepreneurs with big ideas and proven execution skills. Big markets (and a good understanding of market segmentation, who is the end user, what problem does it solve), great teams that have formed around a common vision. Disruptive ideas. Something clever which gives an edge.
Ben was Huddle's first institutional investor in late 2007 and has been riding the roller coaster with us ever since. He's been a tireless supporter of the business from day one and remains one of our most valued friends and advisors.
Ben has been with Huddle from the start as our first institutional investor right through to the global scale it is today. From day one and continuing he's been a great board member and investor; hugely supportive, fair and honest in his feedback but critical and demanding when right to be so, ambitious for the company and transparent in his dealings at all times. Most importantly, he's come through time and time again, not just at early stage but later, when it mattered, taking the board and investors with him at critical times.
