Serial entrepreneurship

Hugh Chappell, who exited TrustedReviews.com in 2007, describes how he has gone on to become a successful serial entrepreneur.

Hugh Chappell, founder, TrustedReviews.com and Bit-Tech.net

Hugh had just two jobs in 24 years before striking out on his own to establish TrustedReviews.com in 2003. Having begun his career with Apple Computer Inc. in 1979 and then spent 18 years at Kaga Electronics, Hugh spotted a gap in the market for consumer technologies reviews written by trusted experts. Hot on the heels of his initial success in the field of online-only publishing, he founded Bit-Tech.net just two years later. Hugh sold TrustedReviews.com to IPC Media in 2007 for an undisclosed sum; he exited Bit-Tech.net exactly a year later, selling it to Dennis Publishing. Hugh is also a Board Director for E2Exchange: Entrepreneur to Entrepreneur Exchange.

This interview was originally recorded by UBS in 2015 with the help of E2Exchange, the entrepreneur network.
