A Leicester man now living in San Francisco has been named one of the best early-stage investors in the US.

Andy McLoughlin OBE from Evington was ranked the 42nd top seed investor in America by Business Insider magazine and venture capital firm Tribe Capital.

Andy is a partner at seed-stage venture capital Uncork Capital, where his notable investments include meditation and sleep app Calm, food delivery service Postmates and messaging platform Intercom.

Business Insider said:

“McLoughlin has a knack for investing in companies that may seem unsexy but create lasting value for their customers.”

Upon being named in the top 100 list, Andy said:

There are countless thousands of great early-stage VCs and angel investors in the US so am honored to be named number 42 in the Seed 100: The Best Early Stage Investors by Business Insider and Tribe Capital. Not bad for a lad from Leicester! 🇬🇧🇺🇸☺️
