David Murray-Hundley

Former LinkedIn European Business Leader of the Year, Tech world and Smarta Winner, David Murray-Hundley is a chairman, adviser and NED of a number of tech companies. He is CEO of Adaro Red and now, having once been a humble employee of the very same firm, he is the new founder of Commerce One ‘the next generation’. Yet, even with a workload to rival a few peoples schedules put together he still doesn't feel like he actually "works" for a living.

Murray-Hundley started developing games at a young age and published his first ... for Superior Software at just 11 years old (only BBC nerds will get that). He worked for the first internet companies when people still asked him for ID. He was one of the founding team members at Commerce One long before it peaked at a $22bn market cap. In 2002, the same company also bankrupted him.

DMH moved onto his first CEO role at 27, messed that up, learnt from it too and became CTO for Utility One. More recently, he has been working with the public sector and, much to his frustration, the NHS in particular. He's an advocate of the 'we should all have a go at changing the near impossible for the better' attitude.

Murray-Hundley's a book 'The Grumpy Entrepreneur’ is due out this year. He hopes it will answer the some of the questions he is asked repeatedly most days.

Alastair Mitchell

Alastair Mitchell, CEO, Huddle

His third internet start-up, Alastair founded Huddle with Andy McLoughlin as he was frustrated by existing enterprise technology's inability to help people work together. Spending millions of dollars on a SharePoint implementation, only to watch it fail dismally, was the final straw. In contrast, collaboration apps in our social lives just worked. As a result, Huddle was born. Since setting up the company in 2006, Alastair has grown Huddle to 200 people in London, San Francisco and New York, raised in excess of $40 million in funding and seen sales triple year on year.

Alastair's 11 year career has followed the trajectory of the internet. After his first start-up, an online media business, Alastair moved into online exchanges and he built the first global soft commodities marketplace. When the business got bought-out by one of its investors, Alastair moved to Dunnhumby. Here he led its web-based marketing intelligence product from zero to $60 million sales within 4 years. He joined the board in 2005 to head up a 300 person global team, running their shopper loyalty practise. When Dunhumby was purchased by Tesco, Alastair started Huddle.
