CEO & Co-Founder


Richard Harris

Judge for The Innovation Award

Richard graduated from London University in the early 90s, with a degree in Theoretical Physics. Since then, he has been successfully predicting and monetising industry trends through innovation. This has generated millions in revenues for multiple companies.

As well as his directorship at Mint, Richard is Chief Executive of Ensygnia and an advisor to London University. He founded Ensygnia to make life easier and safer for consumers to buy things online.

This has evolved to enable any retailer to instantly sell anything, anywhere, anytime. Ensygnia focusses on delivering beautiful simplicity no matter how complex the customer journey. Although this is made to look easy, the Onescan platform has had millions of pounds investment, with over seven years of development and enhancement. Competitors have not managed to copy it so far, despite investing tens of millions in trying.  Key aspects are patent protected in major countries globally.

In his spare time, he's keen épée fencer, a campaigner for the rights of vulnerable adults and mental health issues when possible working with and supporting Mental Health Research UK.  He volunteers for Founders4Schools, as well as mentoring Nicholas Fearn a young man with Asperger’s. He also enjoys creating beauty with molten glass, composing music, painting and digital art.
