‘This is a good time to sell,’ Bruce Macfarlane tells Spear’s. ‘Prices are high and buyers are sitting on a lot of cash. We have sold two companies in the last eight months.’ Macfarlane, a former US securities lawyer and Merrill Lynch banker, founded the venture firm in 2000 while working in the City. Inspiration struck and begat an angel investment platform that combines ‘value-added capital’ with thorough due diligence. He believes networking is still the best way to bring ‘good businesses’ in — understandable when the firm sifts through over 1,000 propositions a year. MMC has won many awards and made headlines for its £2.5 million investment in Sky-Futures, Europe’s largest ever drone tech company
