Inspiring entrepreneurs to exceed their own expectations.

Hello, I’m Richard Harpin, the founder and CEO of HomeServe plc and an entrepreneur since my early childhood. I have a real passion for business. I’ve been lucky enough to take HomeServe from a £100,000 start-up to an international FTSE 250 business with a £3+ billion market cap, £1+ billion turnover with 8+ million customers worldwide.

I have benefited hugely from having mentors like Nigel Morris, co-founder of Capital One, Jeff Boyd, Chairman of Booking.com and Steve Kaufer, founder and CEO of TripAdvisor.

Back in 2015, I decided to start offering to help other entrepreneurs at an earlier stage in their journeys. I wanted to help them avoid the mistakes I made in HomeServe and share some of the successes, supporting them in achieving step-change growth in their business.

I set up Growth Partner, to put my own money into backing great entrepreneurs with exciting proven, and profitable businesses.
