Entrepreneur & Investor Introducing Michael Houghton

Originally from New Zealand and now living in Ireland, I've spent the last fifteen years developing and growing businesses.

I graduated from the University of Auckland in 2005 with a Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Management and Entrepreneurship.

I am also passionate about passive investing and actively invest in peer to peer lending and forestry investments.

I'm constantly hunting for new opportunities and seeking to grow and expand new companies when an opportunity presents itself.

I blog a few times a year on various topics, related to entrepreneurship, investing and financial education. Feel free to check out my blog for my latest articles.
