What would the perfect ‘tech for good’ investor be like?

By Paul Miller

We’re really just getting started with Bethnal Green Ventures. We believe that tech has the potential to massively change the world for the better, solving big problems in healthcare, education and sustainability to name a few. We believe that there’s no shortage of people out there who have the talent and desire to build the new tech startups to solve those problems and finally we believe that the capital to help them is out there, even if it’s perhaps not yet getting to the people who could do the most with it.

As we develop we want to get a lot better at what we do and we think it’s always good to aim for the stars. Hence the question in the post title – if you had a blank piece of paper, what would the perfect tech for good investor be like? What support would they provide? How would they provide it? How would they behave? Where would they be based? How would they know if they were successful?
