“So far he has used the money to help fund TiNDLE which makes fake chicken in the US and hopes to bring the product to the UK.
“Paul has also invested in a UK music tech start-up called Audoo. The picks may be a little less traditional than the stock market, but it pays dividends for Paul.

It comes after Sir Paul took to Instagram to show off his incredible flexibility as he practiced the headstand during a yoga session.
The Beatles legend showcased the impressive move while claiming it was his “showcase moment” when he was working out at the gym.
In the snap, the singer used a yoga mat to comfort himself and was joined by his Old English Sheepdog Rose, who was unimpressed.
The rocker donned a white t-shirt for practice which he paired with dark shorts and colorful Nike sneakers.

Sir Paul sweated it out in front of the TV in the posh home he shares with wife Nancy Shevell, 62.
He wrote: “The headstand is my demonstration moment when I’m in the gym…A yoga teacher once told me that it keeps you young”.
In August, the Hey Jude hitmaker shared a photo of himself in another yoga pose alongside his late brother-in-law, who died of cancer.
John, who had known Paul for more than 50 years, was the brother of Linda Eastman McCartney, the Beatles legend’s first and famous wife who died in 1998.

Paul wrote: “My dear brother-in-law, John Eastman, has passed away. Knowing us for over 50 years, this is an extremely sad time for me and our families.
The yoga enthusiast and rock star previously claimed that eye yoga helped his vision after discovering the practice during a trip to India in the late 2000s.
The legendary musician admitted it may “sound a little weird”, but he is able to read the newspaper without glasses.
Speaking to Jessie Ware on her Table Manners podcast, Paul said: “I learned from a yogi in India. He explained that your eyes are muscles. Your ears are not, so you can’t exercise your ears. But your eyes, you can.

Explaining some of the exercises, the Beatles legend compared it to the shape of the Union Jack, he continued: “So stand still, then you look as far as you can, one, two, three, come back to the middle, then down, back to middle.
“You do three batches of it, then go left and right. Now you have a cross, from top to bottom and sideways, now you make the diagonals.
Talking about how eye yoga has helped his vision, Paul added: “It all makes sense. I don’t know if that’s why I don’t need glasses to read a newspaper.
The musician also revealed that he created eye yoga instructions for a friend’s daughter that “improved her eyesight” and kept her from wearing glasses “for a few years.”
To which Jessie tried the practice with Paul, joking, “Anyone looking out the window would think we were crazy. It’s a session! This may sound a little weird.
It’s not the first time Paul has praised eye yoga and in 2009 he said, according to the Mirror: “When I was in India, there was a guy in one of the hotels who offered to teach me eye yoga exercises.
“He told me that the eyes are muscles like any other muscle and they need exercise to keep working properly.
“By spending so much time in front of computers, watching TV, or reading books, we only use one set of muscles in our eyes. Yoga gives others a workout.”
