Profile

Hussein Kanji

Description

For Hoxton Ventures co-founder Hussein Kanji, there is a great deal of hype regarding tech ventures, especially ‘home-grown British success stories’. The firm, whose investments include food-delivery app Deliveroo and cyber-security player Darktrace, always approaches propositions with caution.

‘We invest only if a company has the potential to be a very large, valuable, global business,’ he says. Hoxton Ventures ‘chases after outliers’, betting on ideas that can perhaps create new industry categories. It focuses on European start-ups in internet, mobile and software. Investments range from $250,000 to $2 million, and it looks to become shareholders for seven to ten years.
