NSE has been described as Britain’s answer to Elon Musk. It’s a comparison that, as I found, isn’t far-fetched—and the fact is, Martin Warner is more likely to be in one than you. autonomous flight EVTOL (Electric Vertical Take-off and Landing) vehicles than SpaceX in the near future.
With his thick glasses, he reminds me of an old Buddy Holly. But Warner is more of a rock-star entrepreneur – an inventor, a movie fan and a cigar fan. He is the definition of a multi-hyphenate who works 12–14 hours a day on a raft of different projects, such as a chess master playing a dozen games simultaneously. “I try and tell my kids not to be narrow,” he says. He sets a good example.
And he too began to be young. Growing up in Kent, at the age of 11, he began renting games for Atari consoles for £1 per night, finding his clients on the playground. But the headmaster soon put an end to this promising start-up. “They took all my games and gave them to their kids,” says Warner.
