Meet Hugh Campbell
Having founded GP Bullhound, a technology advisory and investment firm, along with two friends over 20 years ago, Hugh has had plenty of experience working with the world’s best tech companies, entrepreneurs and shareholders.
So what’s the biggest change he’s seen in those 20 years? The speed with which today’s tech companies are being built. Google took 10 years to reach an annual revenue of $1bn. In the same time, Uber reached $50bn in annual revenue.
This speed of disruption means today’s business leaders need to learn how to be decisive and be prepared to make mistakes. And cities from all corners of Europe are quickly positioning themselves as hubs for global innovation with the belief that they can make it big on the global stage.
