My Influences: Ivailo Jordanov

Entrepreneur you admire

  Jeff Bezos who started Amazon from his garage in 1994 and turned it into a multi-billion dollar company, contrary to everyone tellinghim that his idea was never going to work. He showed how important it is to follow your gut instinct, regardlessof what other people say.


I am currently reading Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson. I am a huge fan of Apple products and I love how Jobs was able to take devices that existed before and completely revolutionise them.

Favourite film

Oceans 11. Two hours of thrilling action sequences, plenty of gadgets, a top cast, humour and a very clever plot.

Favourite TV show

Dragon’s Den is simply great television. I’m always fascinated to see how entrepreneurs defend their business ideas under pressure.


I just saw Rock Of Ages in the West End and it was brilliant. I highly recommend it.

Holiday destination

 Ibiza! Sun, beach and cocktails. Need I say more?

A person you admire

Warren Buffet. His letters to his shareholders really show what an amazing businessman he is.

Advice for a new start up
