Founder and Non-Executive Board Member
Veeqo was born out of Matt’s frustration running a multi-channel e-commerce company. He thought there had to be a way of managing all his orders, shipping and accounting but there was nothing that did what he needed. In the four years before last year's award he raised more than £2.5m for the business via crowdfunding and the company is backed by some of the world’s biggest retail and tech investors, including New Look founder Tom Singh.
Pia, which City A.M. understands is about to close an institutional funding round, has so far received investment from New Look's founder Tom Singh, a former Barclays Wealth CEO and a former Coutts chief investment officer, as well as a syndicate organised by angel investor group QVentures.
