I studied A-levels at Bedales School, then rented music equipment at Hilton Sound plc, and worked at Real World Studios as an assistant engineer. I helped buyout the Music Bank from Hilton at the age of 18. In 1994 I went to Imperial College to study computer science, leaving after one year to start Orchestream. After being turned down by 100 investors, I won backing from Esther Dyson, Hermann Hauser and Terry Matthews. Aged 23 I had raised over £30m and built a 100 man software company that automated service activation of IP-VPNs for many telecos such as BT, Vodafone, Singtel and BellSouth. We floated Orchestream on the LSE & Nasdaq in June 2000 and hit a market cap of over £1bn and Oracle bought the company. In 2001 I started an angel network called iGabriel with Ryan Prince and Mark Woodall. I then founded Nexagent which pioneered CAD-like solution modelling and process automation software for complex telecoms and IT environments. Our largest client, EDS, bought the company in 2008.Founder @ From January 2015 to Present (1 year) London, United KingdomFounder & CEO @ From September 2010 to Present (5 years 4 months) MA @ Imperial College London From 1994 to 1995 Bedales School Charlie Muirhead is skilled in: Telecommunications, Venture Capital, Digital Media, Entrepreneurship, Software, Video, Broadcast, Entertainment, Sound, Product Management, Start-ups, Mobile Devices, Angel Investing, E-commerce, Cloud Computing
