Industry commentators recognise Lex Deak as a leading investment expert. The 35-year-old serial entrepreneur founded ‘super-angel investment club’ QVentures with David Mickler and Quintessentially’s Aaron Simpson. It provides the market with ‘a single access point, a beautiful interface’ to encourage greater capital flow. The company is expanding into 60 international satellite offices, and has raised over £100 million for over 70 firms including Beer52, Bitposter and Chronext with investment tickets ranging from £25,000 to £2 million. Deak has also spent the year assimilating his Off3r business into Pia, what he describes as the ‘next generation of robo advisers’ for retail investors.
