Meet the NexGen Cloud Team

Co-Founder and director

Chris Starkey

Chris’s enthusiasm for discovering the next tech superstar fuelled his ambition to co-found NexGen after nearly ten years’ experience in investing into tech start-ups.

Four years ago, Chris co-founded the Bure Valley Group, alongside Antony Wade. Chris’s strength in business development powers every project he is involved in, alongside gaining financial support.

During his time at Bure Valley, Chris has raised over £40 million and mentored many start-ups. Several have gone on to secure partnership contracts with blue chip companies, becoming market leaders within their respective industries, which in turn has resulted in huge ROI for investors.

Chris’s vision brought Cudo and NexGen together to create this game changing investment opportunity.

Co-Founder and director

Antony Wade

Antony’s long experience in the tech market began three decades ago, trading tech companies on the LSE.

After many years in senior management for a world leading blue chip manufacturing company, Antony put his extensive knowledge in financial management to use. He invested in tech start-up companies and co-founded Bure Valley Group; a network of sophisticated investors who help young technology companies grow from inception and build their revenue streams.

Antony has played a pivotal role, not only in raising millions in investment for young tech companies through the network, but also in the rapid pace at which the network has grown. Antony is a key board member and helped conceive the idea of NexGen through his passion in developing new tech companies.
