At the tender age of 35, Mark Pearson has achieved more than most entrepreneurs manage in a life-time. The former chef created Britain’s biggest voucher and deals network, and framed an extraordinarily successful business model.
Having grown the business to over 3,500 retailers across 12 countries, MyVoucherCodes’ parent company Markco Media was sold for £55m to Monitise in June last year.
Unsurprisingly, Mark has earnt widespread renown, after appearing on Channel 4’s Secret Millionaire and winning a host of awards such as the Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award and our very own Young Guns.
Launching Fuel.Ventures in April this year, Mark has now turned his focus to investing in new firms which have the same potential to spot a lucrative gap in the market.
