Alex Hook

Investment Director

Alex is an Investment Director responsible for Nesta’s technology venture investments, as well as Nesta’s portfolio of mission-aligned investments.

Alex has worked for almost 20 years making and managing investments into early stage businesses, from seed stage ideas to larger rounds into more established companies (Series A/B). Prior to Nesta, he worked as an investment manager at Foursome Investments, the direct investment vehicle for a high net worth family, which is now called Frog Capital. Through this time, Alex has supported the commercialisation efforts of dozens of companies, sharing in the successes and failures that have ensued.

Before his move into investment management, Alex started his career in the design & marketing industry, working as an account manager for Conran Design Group and others. Outside of work, Alex can be found apologising to his teammates during 5 aside football, trying to convince his sons to lend a hand in the garden and walking up hills.
