Trustee - Marc Wileman

Speciality: Entrepreneurship

Marc is best known for inspiring more than one million children to discover how awesome science can be by founding the Dragons' Den and Queen's Awesome Winning children's science education company Sublime Science. 

After founding Sublime Science with a £1,750 Prince's Trust loan ‘Mad’ Marc Wileman went on to fire smoke rings, make slime and win investment on Dragons’ Den. He’s inspired more than 1,000,000 children to discover just how awesome science can be. His dedication to changing the way science is taught has even been recognised by Her Majesty with a Queen’s Award for Innovation. Sublime Science was acquired by Hyphen Capital in 2018 in "one of the most successful deals in Dragons Den history" and Marc is excited about seeing the best of British Science shared with children across the world. 

Marc decided to become a trustee of East African Playgrounds because:

“Play is such a vitally important part of childhood and East African Playgrounds do an absolutely awesome job of making it possible for so many children.”
