— Celebrity Business Investor, Hamilton Bradshaw Group
In 2004 I founded private equity firm Hamilton Bradshaw (HB) and joined the panel of heavyweight investors for BBC’s Dragons’ Den in 2007. My main focus is on my charity work , current investments, growing HB, my appointment as Chairman of the Start Up Loans Company and mentoring entrepreneurs to help ensure their success.
My passion is building businesses and backing talented people. I have been building and selling businesses since 1985 and I think it is important to invest in people rather than just products or businesses. I’m a great believer that it is people who create a successful business through their passion and conviction. I’ve always believed “It’s your attitude, not your aptitude that determines your altitude”.
Hamilton Bradshaw is an investment group that specializes in seed capital and growth capital for service-based businesses such as recruitment, real estate, business services and property investment. We have established ourselves as the leading recruitment investment firm and we are one of the top 30 recruitment companies in the world. All of the businesses that we back receive tailored, expert support, giving them an incredible platform from which to grow rapidly.
