The Invested Investor Team
We're on a mission to improve the journeys of startups by educating angels and entrepreneurs to make fewer mistakes, work better together and produce more successful exits. We want to make angels more comfortable to invest their time, emotion and expertise into start-ups, and help entrepreneurs with how they should start to talk to investors and then build an honest relationship with them.
Peter Cowley, a Cambridge university technology graduate, founded and ran over 10 businesses in technology and property over the last 35+ years. He has built up a portfolio of over 60 angel investments with 3 good exits and several failures. He was UK Angel of the Year 2014/15. He has mentored hundreds of entrepreneurs and is on the board of seven startups. He is chair of the Cambridge Angels and is a fellow in Entrepreneurship at the Judge Management School in Cambridge.
Alan manages The Invested Investor. He has an unrivalled passion for the project, not simply because it is a family run venture, but because from his own experiences he knows all to well that learning from mistakes leads to greater success and honesty is paramount in any relationship. His varied background consists of ski instructing to gold mining exploration, via FMCG market research.
