Sir Charles Dunstone

I started Carphone Warehouse over 20 years ago out of the boot of a car on Marylebone Road.  Now, many ventures later, I’ve been privileged to work with some of Britain’s most inspiring brands and business models. 

We all know that it takes grit, ingenuity and mettle to disrupt markets, and that’s exactly what we bring to the table. Whether helping startups to grow from small beginnings, or helping established brands expand internationally, Freston has the expertise and experience required to build household names.

I joined Charles at Carphone in 2000, and ever since we’ve sought out partners around the world who we know are committed to improving the lives of the consumers they serve and the leaders they back.

At Freston Ventures, we continue this partnership ethos. Whether it's Five Guys, MOD Pizza, Active Capital or Venrex Partners, we partner with companies we love and with investors we trust to build exciting brands.
