More recently Steven has invested in and joined the board of Huel, which is the UK’s fastest growing ecommerce company internationally. He’s invested in and taken a role as an advisor in atai life sciences – a biotech company working to cure mental health disorders, and his other investments focus on blockchain technologies, biotech, space, and social media.
At just 28 years old, he is widely considered one of Europe’s most talented and accomplished young entrepreneurs and philosophical thinkers.
Steven will join Dragon’s Den from Series 19, as the youngest ever Dragon in the Show’s history.
