David Glick Founder, Edge Investments
David Glick is the founder of Edge Investments, which in November 2015 announced the launch of the Edge Creative Enterprise Fund, a new £40m fund, with UK Government support, which will invest in high growth companies in the creative industries.
David Glick has been involved in the investment in, mentoring of, and the sale and purchase of multi-million pound entertainment and media assets, with a particular emphasis on music, television, film, sport, theatre and fashion, and enabling technologies.
He formed the Edge group of companies in 2004 as a specialist investment and advisory business for the entertainment and media sector, before selling the advisory business in 2011 in order to concentrate on venture capital investing, most notably Edge Performance VCT, the UK's biggest single venture capital trust. At Edge, he has brokered and advised clients on the sale and purchase of a range of entertainment and media related assets and businesses. He has also been both an executive and a non-executive director of Entertainment Rights (now part of DreamWorks), the UK media business which was quoted on the Official List and which, during the period of his involvement, grew from a startup to a market capitalisation of approximately £213 million, and subsequently to £380 million.
