I am Richard Muirhead and you can find my professional background here, what catches my attention here, and follow my personal stuff here. And read all about me here :)This is Mindbike - my vehicle for consulting, angel investing, and business building since 2009.Before that I built two category-leading software companies, Orchestream (now Oracle) and Tideway (now BMC), you can find out more here. I am in the process of moving my blogs here.I am a General Partner at OpenOcean, running our London Operation. We love entrepreneurs who have built delicious business software and want a partner in facing the challenge of 'scale hacking' this into an enduring business - not just user growth, but also hiring, values, back-end architecture and commission plans. And we don't just partner... we also write cheques of around €2.5m at the classic early Series A stage.
My current directorships are at Protozoa, Cronofy and Dataloop. I co-founded Firestartr where my seed investments include Pacemaker, Urban Massage and ClusterHQ. My personal investments include Citymapper, Automic and Pusher. My consulting clients can be found here. If you have in mind a potential new company, investment or want to join one of the portfolio, then please go ahead and drop me a line using the form below.Very best,Richard.
