David Cleevely, Chair of the Raspberry Pi Foundation and co-founder of Cambridge Angels joins the Invested Investor podcast this week with an impressive story. David shares his early career highlights with us in part one of his fascinating journey. In the mid 70’s, David tells us he “cut his teeth” within PostOffice Telecommunications and how this experience taught him to think ahead, which influenced his subject choice for his phD at Cambridge during the 80’s. He also shares with us his time at the Economist newspaper group within the intelligence unit. David recalls how he went on to found Analysys which became the “go to” telecommunications consultancy of the time and his work with the European Commission. David talks about co-founding Cambridge Network, Cambridge Wireless and the biotech company Abcam, before finishing by touching on his consultancy for communications within the Department of Defence.
