Jamie is an entrepreneur, author, and philanthropist who harbours a deep passion for extreme adventures.
Raised in Bethnal Green, East London, Jamie benefited from the supportive efforts of the Imps Motorcycle Display Team and the Prince’s Trust. Both these charities strive to improve the lives of underprivileged young people, and they remain dear to Jamie’s heart. Upon retiring from the Imps at the age of sixteen, Jamie founded his first business. Since then, he has launched and sold multiple enterprises, maintains ownership in several UK businesses, and invests in numerous others through his investment fund, Firestarters’.
Jamie is the Founder and immediate past Chair of the Prince’s Trust Enterprise Network, the Sponsor of the Imps Motorcycle Display Team, the Author of ‘Unsexy Business’, and an active investor in UK Enterprise.
