Q&A with angel investor Mark Mason

Every week we talk to a business angel, one of the early-stage investors who collectively inject £1.5bn a year into British start-up companies

Mark Mason is one of six founding members of the Bristol Private Equity Club (BPEC), set up two years ago to support start-ups in the West Country city.

BPEC, which has 75 high-net-worth members, has raised £3.5m. It has backed artificial intelligence developer Rovco, disability support business AutonoMe and women’s fitness brand This Mum Runs.
