Harry Hamburg

Harry has been mad about technology since he was a child, growing up in the days of MS DOS and floppy disks.

At university Harry, unsurprisingly, studied multimedia technology before completing a post-grad NCTJ certificate in journalism.

He has worked as a financial writer for the better part of a decade and was an early adopter of crypto, having owned Bitcoin since 2013.

When Harry isn’t writing Exponential Investor, you’ll find him getting beaten up in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or losing his way around the world, taking adventure photos. But his passion is researching and writing about world-changing tech.
