Steven Bartlett is the 29-year-old Founder of the social media marketing agency Social Chain. From a bedroom in Manchester, this university drop-out built what would become one of the world’s most influential social media companies when he was just 21 years old, before taking his company public at 27 years old with a current market valuation of over $600M.
Steven is as a speaker, investor, author and content creator, hosting one of Europe’s biggest podcasts, ‘The Diary of a CEO’. Steven recently released his debut book ‘Happy Sexy Millionaire’ which is a Sunday Times best seller.
He’s particularly focused on inspiring a new generation of entrepreneurs and creators from a BAME background and much of his work after winning the “British Black Entrepreneur of the year” award focused on disadvantaged schools and communities.
More recently Steven has invested in and joined the board of Huel, which is the UK’s fastest growing ecommerce company internationally. He’s invested in and taken a role as an advisor in Atai Life Sciences – a biotech company working to cure mental health disorders, and his other investments focus on blockchain technologies, biotech, space, and social media.
At just 29 years old, he is widely considered one of Europe’s most talented and accomplished young entrepreneurs and philosophical thinkers.
Steven joined the current series of BBC’s Dragons’ Den (Series 19), as the youngest ever Dragon Investor in the show’s history and will be recording Series 20 in the summer of 2022.
