Ben Blume

Ben is a Principal at Atomico, where he focuses on enterprise software and SaaS companies, with a particular interest in companies building products powered by deep technologies including machine intelligence and advanced analytics. He also spends time looking at developer tools and infrastructure, and new and emerging technology developments including in the Internet of Things and robotics.

Ben led Atomico’s investments into, and sits on the boards of, Automation Hero and Spacemaker. He also sits on the boards of Hinge Health, Bitmovin and Uniplaces. He was also closely involved in Atomico’s investments into Oden, CloudNC, Graphcore and Streetbees.

Prior to joining Atomico as an associate, Ben was a consultant at Bain & Company, and a software engineer at Bank of America Merrill Lynch where he developed information systems for traders.

Ben holds a first class BA in Computer Science from Queens’ College, Cambridge but vintage TV footage proves that Ben had caught the tech bug much earlier in his life: at age seven he was interviewed for the BBC’s ‘Computers Don’t Byte’ programme on the growing trend in family home pages (think ‘profile pages’ in the pre-social network era).
