Nigel Biggs

Nigel founded his own software company in 1987 specialising in national database systems. In 1995 the company, Pixology, started to develop its own digital imaging software products and later launched The Digital Camera Company, the first internet-based camera retailer.

In 2002 Nigel became the founding Chairman and Business Champion of the Government-funded Surrey Enterprise Hub and then, in the subsequent Innovation & Growth Team became more hands-on as a trained business mentor.

A few years ago Nigel started a new company, Passionate Innovation to help and inspire organisations to build an effective and continuing innovation culture.

Nigel has been the entrepreneur-in-residence at Surrey since 2006. He describes the role as “finding enterprising students and helping them do it”. Nigel also mentors Surrey Student Enterprise students. Our mentors are local business professionals, passionate about their specialist area. They volunteer their time to help you by sharing their practical advice on overcoming the hurdles involved in setting up in business.
