Oliver is CEO of Envestors Limited, which he co-founded in 2004 helping investors source interesting deals. Over 4,000 sophisticated investors have registered on the Envestors platform and invest a minimum of £25,000 (average £42,000) per transaction. To date Envestors has completed £95m of investment into 200 companies through its offices in London, Jersey and Dubai.
Between 2006 and 2014, Oliver sat on the Board of the UK Business Angels Association (UKBAA). Oliver is a Member of Court at Imperial College, where he took his MBA in 1992.
After completing a finance degree, Oliver decided not to become an accountant but instead raised equity and bank debt to start Woolleys Healthfoods. The business comprised three retail catering outlets in central London and three organic sausage shops and a factory in the south-east of England, which wholesaled to 200 establishments including Harrods. In 1997 he sold the business to Northern Foods and moved into early-stage investing.
