Having established 18 start-ups, including 3sixty Capital, which provides capital investment advice for sustainable ventures, Tony Bury is a serial entrepreneur. He is the founder and funder of Mowgli Foundation, a UK-based award-winning mentoring organization that works with international and local governments, financial institutions, philanthropists, and corporations to provide mentoring programs that empower entrepreneurs, particularly in the Middle East and North Africa. Bury believes that the best way to empower entrepreneurs, address unemployment, and alleviate poverty is to start at the foundation of what it takes to be an entrepreneur. That involves holistic mentoring with a focus on both the personal and professional aspects of entrepreneurs’ development so as to create a better-prepared and more capable entrepreneur who can grow. Since 2008, Mowgli Foundation has delivered more than 85 mentoring programs and matched some 780 entrepreneurs with trained mentors, and facilitated their 12-month one-to-one mentoring relationships in 14 countries. Since 2010, Tony has been involved in education as both a governor and donor at Prior Park Schools in Bath, England.
