6. Mike Lynch - Entrepreneur, angel investor, Autonomy founder

Mike Lynch won the 2011 UKtech50 award as the most influential person in UK IT following the £7bn sale of the company he founded, Autonomy, to HP, which made him the most senior UK IT leader in the world's biggest IT company.

Nonetheless, he remains hugely influential in the UK IT scene, and is currently bringing together investors to create a fund to support UK tech start-ups.
