Paul Spence - The Venture Catalyst

Paul Spence (@geniusnet) has been around the startup and tech scene for a long time but we start with our pre-take off checklist as Paul was a pilot and aviation meteorologist before heading into tech. 

Most will know Paul from iwantmyname.com, a domain management company he started with Lenz Gschwendtner and Timo Reitnauer.

Paul is also very active in the community (not only in tech) and always looks to help people where he can with his insights into startups, community and collaboration.

More recently he started another endeavour called polany.io – an insight engine. So keep an eye out for that in the coming months.
