“techspert.io is well placed to redefine the way that businesses access expertise,” said Mike.
“It’s a delight to find a business that’s already on the way to working out how to challenge an incumbent business model. I love the fact that David and Graham have already made such amazing progress and hope that I can help them avoid some of the many mistakes I have made over the years,” he added.
David Holden-White, joint Co-Founder and Managing Director with Graham Mills concluded:
“It’s fantastic that Mike and Henry are joining us on our mission to empower the world’s businesses to make better-informed decisions. They bring a wealth of experience from their respective fields and they’ll have a massive impact on the scaling-up of techspert.io over the coming years.”
