Tim Mills is an Investment Director at the British Business Bank and also leads the investment activity and operations of the Angel CoFund. The fund launched at the end of November 2011 and during the first 15 months of the fund’s operation it became apparent that there was considerable demand, from both high potential SMEs and business angels, for co-investment from the fund. Supported by additional capital from the British Business Bank the fund has been able to increase its investment capacity to £100M. Any profits generated by the fund are recycled for further investment.

Tim started his career with Merrill Lynch, joining their graduate leadership programme to spend several years working in Europe, North America and Asia. Tim became an Associate Vice President in the technology group at Merrill before moving to Barclays Capital to work on the integration of the firm's expanding global operations. In the past Tim has worked with a leading credit analytics consultancy and one of the UK’s largest hedge funds. Prior to the creation of the British Business Bank, Tim spent 5 years with Capital for Enterprise, leading investments into venture capital funds as well as launching various funds, including the Angel CoFund.

Tim has a B.Sc. in Business and Technology and holds a full-time MBA from Manchester Business School.
