- Yuri Milner, arguably most influence investor online is renting house to Sussexes

Yuri Milner is arguably the most influential investor in the 'dot-com' universe. Last summer, he met Prince Harry at 'Google Camp', the VIP conference organised to tackle climate change.
Amid the dozens of A-list celebrities and social media Titans gathered in isolated splendour on the Sicilian coast last summer, the interaction between two of the more camera-shy guests went largely unnoticed.
His name was Yuri Milner, and he is arguably the most influential investor in the ‘dot-com’ universe.
For the duration of the event, he was based on a superyacht called Andromeda, anchored a launch ride offshore. The 107-metre vessel has a helipad, cabins for 30 overnight guests and a crew of 43. It was recently bought for $250 million — by a mystery buyer — from the richest man in New Zealand.
