Cochrane is currently engaged as an advisor by the Qatar Computing Research Institute, The MoD and Chorus New Zealand.

In the start up sector Cochrane was a founding board member at eBookers and the lead investor in Shazam Entertainment. He also assisted in the launch and funding of a further 25 start-ups from 1998 through to 2012.
