About this Episode

Nick Telson

A serial angel investor and previously co-founded Design My Night, a nightlife discovery website, in 2010. Nick came from a background in marketing with L'Oreal launching two brands in the UK before going into Design My Night, which went on to have 8 million views a month and 250 million worth of transactional revenue with two groundbreaking B2B hospitality systems.

Design My Night was later acquired by the access group. And Nick now has founded the Horseplay Ventures group, which is an angel investing arm and startup studio kind of giving back from what helped him start his own business.

Horseplay invest in 25 companies to date across the UK and the US. And now Nick's also started the podcast called Pitch Deck, which has already got into the top five global UK business podcasts, which is pretty impressive for the fact that it literally started like six months ago now.
