Iain Duncumb

Iain is a technologist with broad experience in electronics, software and communications and strong commercial understanding.

After leaving Cambridge University with a degree in engineering, he joined a local start-up company to develop Building Energy Management Systems. Over the next 10 years the company was bought first by Pottertons and then by Schlumberger Industries and Iain progressed to be R&D Manager with 10 technical staff. He was then transferred within Schlumberger to be Director of R&D at their Felixstowe site where he was responsible for developing electronic electricity metering systems with a department of 30 engineers. During this time he reduced time-to-market for new products by 40% by introducing multi-disciplinary development teams.

In 1994, he left Schlumberger to get closer again to interesting technology and gained an MSc with distinction at Loughborough University in user-interface design. Following this he worked as a researcher and then project manager on a number of projects in digital broadcasting and mobile telecoms. Most recently, he conceived, found industrial partners and obtained £350k of government funding for a multimedia DAB Digital Radio project. He managed the project to its successful conclusion at the end of 2003.

Iain now invests and works in start-up companies and continues consultancy work with Loughborough University.
