Mark Pearson is not a typical investor. In a field where it can seem everyone has a finance background, Pearson seems to have almost stumbled into investing. Leaving school where he says, he “didn’t do very well,” Pearson began his working life as a chef in a Gordon Ramsay restaurant. This, however, indirectly set him on his way towards founding Fuel Ventures.
Mark Pearson, founder and managing partner of Fuel Ventures, said: “Since we launched our first fund five years ago the country’s tech ecosystem has gone from strength to strength and evolved into an ecosystem that’s the envy of many around the world."
