Chris is the Founder of Octopus Group and a major investor in Charity Checkout. Octopus Group has over 500 employees and manages £7bn of investments. Chris and his business partner were named the EY UK Entrepreneur of the year in 2017.

In October 2017 Chris Hulatt and his business partner Simon Rogerson led the most recent round of investment for Charity Checkout raising over $1m to accelerate Charity Checkout’s growth. Charity Checkout is planning to increase its headcount and will be investing heavily in its platform with the aim of becoming the world leader in charity and corporate employee-led fundraising.

Charity Checkout was founded in 2012 to support local charities, clubs and societies by helping them to optimise their online donation process. The company operates in the UK and also has clients in Ireland, Australia, Canada and USA. Recent developments have included the opening of a new headquarters in London and the opening up of its services to national charities and established corporations for employee-led fundraising.

Chester Mojay-Sinclare Founder and CEO of Charity Checkout said:

“We are delighted to announce Chris’s appointment to the role of Non-Executive Director and look forward to working with him. Chris brings with him a wealth of knowledge from his background in a FCA regulated environment which will provide valuable insights to Charity Checkout as we continue to grow and invest in the platform.”

Chris Hulatt added:

“I am thrilled to be joining Charity Checkout. Since 2012 when Charity Checkout first launched the platform has helped over 2,000 charities raise well over £18 million. The opportunity to work with the team to deliver genuine innovation and creativity to the industry is an exciting one. I cannot wait to join the board and help Charity Checkout meet their objectives.”
