James Minter

Running away to sea at the age of 18, James left the Royal Navy after 10 years and joined the family company.  Inside four empty buildings just off the Strand he set up Adam House serviced offices in 1999 just in time to catch the dotcom boom.  Two years later he launched Adam Street private members’ club for entrepreneurs and freelancers just in time for the dotcom bomb. In 2008 he went to Notting Hill were he restarted the historic music venue The Tabernacle and hosted performances from Lilly Allen, Take That, Florence and friends and launched a little album by Adele called 21.  Realising that artistic success and financial success were not necessarily connected he is now back full time at Adam Street.


Hope to see you there.  If you are interested in pitching at one of our events, please call the AngelNews team on 01761 452248.
