The event is now the biggest in the UK and Europe, with around 15,000 attendees expected in 2023.
But it started as a side-hustle! Raphael is also one of the angels in the AXA Startup Angel competition.
There are six chances to win, including two top prizes of £25,000, mentorship from the AXA Startup Angels including Raphael himself, and business insurance for a year, thanks to AXA.
