My Businesses

Baltic Broadband Limited – After founding IX Liverpool – Liverpool’s first internet exchange, many people told me of the poor service and slow internet speeds from their high price providers. After hearing how internet speeds are holding back our digital economy, I decided to create Liverpool’s first independent wireless ISP. Baltic Broadband is a startup business internet provider, offering fast, reliable and cost-effective broadband that is designed for SME’s from the ground up.

Internet of Things LimitedChairman – Internet of Things is a research group with special interests in RFID, Remote Sensing, Wearable technology, MQ Telemetry Transport (MQTT), mobile, healthcare applications and several other areas of interest. It works with developer groups, universities and industry on various ideas for commercial exploitation, creating the next generation of internet connected devices for use across many different industries.  It has planned a number of open source community projects and it is always on the lookout for partners to work with on these various bleeding edge applications to share both risk and reward for both commercial gain and to the benefit of the community.

Squeaky Energy Limited – Squeaky Energy powers businesses with squeaky clean energy for less cost than dirty energy generated from fossil fuels. Our 100% green and renewable energy comes from various solar and wind farms that are either owned by us, or our customers, who sell their excess energy back to us and in turn to our other customers via our trading platform.
