About me

Hi everyone, I’m Nigel and I’m Entrepreneur-in-Residence at the University of Surrey. I help students and staff to be enterprising and find that passion inside themselves to do something to make a difference. After my degree in Electrical Engineering and Masters in Computer Science, I worked in the UK and Germany until I founded my software company, Pixology. I later launched and sold The Digital Camera Company as the first internet-based camera retailer. Pixology floated on AIM in 2003 and I stayed in a variety of roles until January 2006. I am also a business mentor and run my own company, Passionate Innovation, to help and inspire organisations to build an effective and continuing innovation culture.

Their lessons help you, your experiences help them. You might even find your next team amongst them! That’s [...]
