Geraint Evans

Geraint Evans

Editor

Geraint is the man behind the content. Editor, social media specialist and story spotter - he also keeps an eye on our jobs and event pages. He's welsh and if you're scared of introducing yourself, this is how you say his name.
Abby Frear

Abby Frear

Director

Abby is one of two managers of our Investment Activator Programme, running the bi-annual Silicon Gorge Investor Showcase and monthly Pitch Me! events. She also gets involved in various other strategic TechSPARK projects throughout the year. 

A Cornish lass, Abby did a languages degree at Bath University followed by a "not very relevant to that" occupation as a Chartered Accountant in London, a Recruiter in Sydney and most recently working as Operations Manager for a tech startup based in Bath. She tends to spend her weekends outside, hiking, camping, climbing not particularly steep mountains, and getting addicted to Danish detective dramas.
