The story behind MKIG
In January 2020, two local Entrepreneurs Amar and Georgina took over the reins of MKIG. They are highly experienced in raising capital and running startup businesses. Their first venture Una Tickets was acquired by Sky in 2016, you can read more about their projects at www.duo.ventures. The pair are eager to continue the success of the group and grow it even further.
MK Investors Group was founded in 2015 by serial entrepreneur Alexander Boswell, who saw the need for MK-based business investment by flowing capital into local start-ups and SMEs.
Alexander maintains long-standing business interests in property, agriculture and foods, in particular local frozen meals company Wiltshire Farm Foods, of which he is a director. He advises and supports numerous small enterprises in the Milton Keynes area.
Boswell is an active ambassador for Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes. Having served as High Sheriff of Buckinghamshire in 2006/7, he was appointed to the role of HM Vice Lord-Lieutenant in 2011.
The main focus of Alexander's community work is Milton Keynes, where he is President of the MK Community Foundation and a Patron to Willen Hospice, Bletchley Park and the City Orchestra. He is a former board member and trustee of the MK Parks Trust and a former Chairman of the Buckinghamshire CLA (Country Land and Business Association), a national body which he still supports at central policy level. In 2014 he facilitated the successful 'Treasures in MK' art exhibition held at the MK Gallery.
