John Finney

Founder & CEO. Isotropic Systems

Having spent 25 years in the telecoms sector John brought Huawei into Europe for the first time and took them into their first billion in revenue. He then moved across into the satellite industry working at medium Earth orbit satellite constellation O3B, which stood for the “Other 3 billion” of the population of the world where broadband internet is not available, going on to raise 1.5 billion USD, launch 12 MEO satellites around the world, before exiting to SES for 2.7 billion USD in 2016. By that time, the scientific research that he personally invested in was starting to become very interesting and so Isotropic Systems was born.
