Michael Bakewell

I joined the Development Bank of Wales’ technology venture investments team in August 2019.

I work with technology-focused Welsh businesses and those looking to move to Wales to secure strong intellectual property positions as they grow.

I am in our Wrexham HQ, where my focus is on business opportunities in north and mid-Wales.

I have worked in the technology venture capital sector, across Wales and the north of England, since the early 2000s.

I have successfully invested in companies working in a variety of technology markets ranging from software to energy efficiency, through to medical devices and novel materials.

I have an MBA from the Open Business School.
