John Connolly

I help startups grow and businesses innovate.

Some of the thing I do are:

  • MD of The Centre For Digital Innovation and C4DI Ventures
  • Sit on the boards of a number of tech start-ups
  • Help businesses develop technology projects
  • Help advise private equity groups on technology investments
  • Non-exec director for a couple of charities

Background & Experience

I have extensive experience of setting up specialist technology businesses and taking them from concept through to profitability. Over the last few years, I’ve built businesses based on a broad range of technologies, including web, mobile, desktop, DVD, and SaaS software.

I studied Electronic Engineering at Dundee University for a bit, have a degree in Computing Science from Newcastle University, and was educated at Hymers College.

When I’m not at work, I like Land Rovers, Rugby, Cake, Beer, Dogs, Country/Rural Pursuits & spending time with my young family.


Work in progress…
