Northern Ireland start-up firm boss named in the UK's top 50 advisers

By Staff Reporter

A Northern Ireland start-up entrepreneur has been named as one of the UK's top 50 business advisers.

Stephen Houston was picked from hundreds of mentors from around the UK for his work with early stage companies at the Northern Ireland Science Park.

The awards are run by the small business network Enterprise Nation, which asked fledgling companies to nominate an adviser who has helped them to build and grow a sustainable business.

Mr Houston - who was named as the Halo Business Angel of the Year in 2013 and is executive chairman and chief executive at QuizFortun - said "trailblazers" like Larry Page and Steve Jobs had all benefited from mentors.
