Smedvig Capital and Entrepreneurs Universe: In conversation with… Sir Trevor Chinn and Brett Akker
On 4th March, Smedvig Capital and Entrepreneurs Universe jointly hosted an event at Home House. The evening included a lively conversation with Streetcar co-founder and entrepreneur Brett Akker, and Sir Trevor Chinn, whose previous roles include Chairman of Lex Service PLC that became the RAC PLC, Kwik-Fit, Chairman of the AA, ITIS holdings and The Mayor’s Fund for London.
Sir Trevor Chinn was appointed as Chairman of Streetcar during Smedvig Capital’s investment in the business. Brett worked closely with Smedvig Capital and Sir Trevor for a number of years during Smedvig’s investment in Streetcar, a pioneering business which revolutionised the car-sharing market. Brett is now moving on with his second venture, LOVESPACE, exploiting a current gap within the self-storage market. Sir Trevor and Brett were in conversation with Philip de Lisle, a serial entrepreneur whose last venture had a $1.5Billion valuation when he exited.
