Neil Lewis, CEO, startup mentor and digital specialist.
Neil’s first digital product – a CD-ROM – was launched in 1991 and was sold to music industry executives who had thought it would work on their CD players.
Neil’s first web based company – JoJaffa – grew to a £4m turn over in 2007 and was offered £12m. The founders turned down the offer and closed the business 2009, walking away with nothing. Neil wrote his book about what he learnt – 100 Rules for Entrepreneurs (http://amzn.to/100Rules).
Neil’s goal is to help build 1,000s of successful startup and innovation teams, hence, he commissioned Manchester Business School to develop the eTeamTool.
