About Dan Bowyer

I run a VC fund that invests in technical founders building business automation startups.
Then we help them go to market. From sale to scale.

It’s my job to help founders get out of startup mode using scalable, repeatable and profitable sales models. Ensuring they get the right people on the bus, create the right energy, infrastructure & activity to get to their first £1m in recurring revenue – Possibly the most exciting and precarious stage for any tech startup. It is an honour to be part of their journey.

Background Short Story:

Tech entrepreneur, operator and investor with 20 years experience building businesses and implementing digital. Having enjoyed some spectacular failures and some delightful successes.

The Long Story:

Left a handful of scrappy A Levels at the school gates and ran to the big smoke with my best Zoolander impression to start modelling with Models 1. Joined a Boy Band in the early 90s for 3 roller coaster years of excess. Left the music world in 94 to present kids TV for the BBC and Channel 4.

Managed to spend it as quickly as earned and realised that however famous or wealthy, it can’t make you happy if you can’t look at yourself in the mirror. Without going too Paulo Coelho, it was time to find myself. So I travelled and when cash ran out took a job running an education centre for Virgin Atlantic, mainly teaching people how to use computers.

Fell in love with tech, did my Windows & Apple Engineer certifications and sold myself to the IT contracting market, property developing on the side. In ’99 joined an internal comms business called INVOLVE as their resident Geek. Cut my business teeth here & worked my way onto the management team. A year later, throwing bricks from the sidelines, it was obviously time to start making my own mistakes and get on the entrepreneur train.

…Unreasonably passionate about people, business and digital.
