Food and drink, consumer technology

The co-founder of leading healthy smoothie brand Innocent Drinks, Reed recently moved into the angel investment space after he and his Innocent co-founders sold 90% of their shares to Coca Cola for an estimated £100m. Since launching his venture capital fund Jamjar Investments in 2012, the entrepreneur has helped fund seed rounds in several fast-growth start-ups including Graze, ToucanBox, Lexie and Gojimo and we predict that he would pounce upon the opportunity to bolster his portfolio by joining the Den.

Named as one of the UK’s 500 most influential people in 2015, Reed would also have a good eye for start-ups in the arts industry as he’s founder of national art show Art Everywhere.
