“The big money!” Paul’s new musical offering comes after Sir Paul reportedly bagged himself £1.5 million investing in plant-based chicken business and a music technology start-up

A source told The sun: ‘Paul is a man of many talents and his new company brings in a lot of money. He uses the company to invest money in growing companies and it works great.

So far he has used cash to fund TiNDLE, which makes fake chicken in the US and hopes to bring the product to the UK.

Paul also invested in a British music technology start-up called Audoo. The choices may be a little less traditional than in the stock market, but it’s paying off for Paul.”
