Nick Meaney co-founded Epagogix 10 years ago in London. 

In his previous company, he realized that the insurance-led approach to risk management for the major US film studios was failing to pro-actively address the underlying fundamental risk: choosing, investing in, and developing the best projects for optimal performance.

Epagogix is based in London and Oxford, with representation in New York and Los Angeles.

Previously Meaney was based in New York as global head of marketing and e-commerce for a company involved in travel and international education. His career started long before that – after graduating from his English university he became a journalist/researcher for “Crain’s Chicago Business” – a newspaper and stable-mate of “Advertising Age”.

As a child I was fascinated with putting electronics into objects around us. After this dream faded away I spent several years travelling around Asia and Australia, aquiring some of my greatest lessons in resourcefulness and making the most of the path and people in front of me. My desire to learn more about electronics resurfaced so I returned to the UK to study for a degree followed quickly by a PhD in physics at Cambridge's Cavendish Laboratory where I moved electrons around one by one, it was electronics at its most simple level! After spending four years in a Cambridge startup I began my new adventure with a company of my own. It has recently become obvious that the work of my team and myself is the realization of my childhood fascinations, we put electronics into paper, and paper is all around us.

Ian Padgham holds a degree in French Gothic Art History from UC Berkeley. Realizing this degree was absolutely useless he set forth to become an "artiste" in Paris for several years. Another professional disaster. Finally, after moving back to San Francisco, Ian ended up at Twitter. While there he managed Twitter's social media sites, made movies, and started Vining. In August of this year Ian left Twitter to start his own Vine and short-form video company, thinking that the only thing better than not having to work would be only working for 6 seconds. Ian also likes camping, traveling, and writing short biographies about himself in the third person.
