Luke Johnson: the truth about VC investment

Luke Johnson, the serial entrepreneur-investor and former Channel 4 boss, gave an awesome keynote speech at the London Funding Conference.

In his typical prickly style, Luke Johnson, who is also chairman of Risk Capital Partners, gives his tips for business angels (back a team, margins matter, understand the business, valuation isn’t the biggest issue, etc), and discusses why now is a great time to start a business.

He argues that the internet has made failing cheaper than ever, and that if you’re thinking of starting a business, you should start part-time.

Real Business is proud to be the London Funding Conference’s media partner. The London Funding Conference, and these exclusive videos, are supported by NatWest, Keystone Law, Gatway2Investment, Business Link, Capital Enterprise and the British Library Business & IP Centre.
