As a serial entrepreneur, Bill Morrow, has been creating, building and selling businesses for the last 30 years. He now sits on the Advisory Board of 14 businesses; each of whom he needs to be able to answer just three simple questions.
He helps these companies raise capital, which is the easy bit but more importantly helps them set up their businesses so that they remain in business beyond raising the money.
Bill spent the first seven years of his working life as an accountant with Virgin and then moved into investment banking in the City of London. He founded and sold an international financial services company to a Wall Street Bank in 2001. Since then he has been making investments.
Most recently he founded Angels Den which has grown to become Europe and Asia’s largest angel investment platform, and he has freshly been named the most influential person in alternative finance by City AM.
Angels Den now operates in 10 countries, from Mexico to Qatar to Hong Kong. Over 92% of every business funded by Angels Den since 2007 in ten countries, is still growing. Angels Den sees over 100 plans a day.
Bill is passionate that every growing, credible, business opportunity, in any part of the world should have the chance to access funding. Since founding Angels Den in 2007, he has changed the rules on angel investing.
Bill is proud to be a catalyst for change in the world of business with the strength of character to speak his mind whether talking to the youngest of start-up entrepreneurs or senior government officials. He is a popular keynote speaker who inspires his audiences with his open approach and determination to promote angel investing.
Bill is a visionary who can cut through complexity and operate in fast changing business and cultural environments. He is a relationship builder who creates a “larger than life” impact and viewed with affection and admiration by the entrepreneurial community around the world. He is a remarkable presenter who encourages all who hear him share in his creative, entrepreneurial spirit.
Bill has run businesses in London, Hong Kong, Singapore, New York, Russia and Dubai. His unique experience in assisting the Hong Kong and Singapore governments to promote entrepreneurship in their countries makes him ideally placed to support emerging entrepreneurial cultures.
