Summary

I have turned my successful hobby of angel investing into becoming a full-time VC with Kindred Capital. Kindred Capital is taking a refreshing approach to early stage investing, continuing the founder-friendly approach I've been practicing over the last 3 years. Kindred Capital even shares 20% of the fund's partner profits (carry) with the founders we invest in.

Previously, I worked with the UK Government to help the cream of UK tech companies get Series A funding in the Afterburner Programme. This has raised $150 million since April 2014, from investors in the UK and Europe, as well as The Valley and Japan.

I've also done angel investing via Ballpark Ventures and held a number of advisory and Non-Exec/Chairman roles and mentor startups at TechStars Accelerator.

Before that, I started the incredibly successful, AdMob (now part of Google) the mobile advertising network, in Europe as its Managing Director. I'm also the ex-Global Chairman of the Mobile Marketing Association and an occasional blogger at MobHappy, although more of a I'm now more of a Twitter fiend @russellbuckley.

What else? One of my other most high profile roles was Marketing Director of ZagMe, a start-up specialising in location based marketing - back in 2000! We recruited 85,000 users and ran 1,500 campaigns, so wrote the book on location based marketing. Well, the free white paper anyway, which I will happily send you if you ask me for a copy.

And I'm still a mobsessed singularitarian.
