Managing Partner

Nick is renowned in Bristol and the West of England for his role as one of the key instigators and activators of the region’s tech scene over the last decade, for which he was awarded an MBE for services to the digital economy in 2019.

His approach has always been values and partnership driven, as an inclusive and collaborative leader, and his network and relationships are broad and deep.

His extensive management experience spans multiple sectors across public, private and third sector organisations, but he is probably best known for growing the Bristol SETsquared Business Acceleration Centre, which was ranked the world’s best university business incubator in 2015, 2018 and 2019. He also co-founded – and took from business plan to opening in 11 months – the unique and internationally renowned Engine Shed, a collaboration between the University of Bristol and Bristol City Council to drive sustainable and inclusive economic growth.

Prior to that, he co-founded Motion Media Technology, developing video communication equipment, which listed on the main market of the London Stock Exchange in 2000.

He is the National Institute of Directors Council member for the South West, sits on the Advisory Board for Common Purpose South West, and is an investor, non-exec director and adviser to a number of organisations. He joins the Governing Board of Bath Spa University in September 2020.
