“I actually first applied for Entrepreneur First while I was an undergraduate. I was really inspired by how the programme was helping people like me break into start-ups.
I got through to an interview, but missed out on a place because while I could hustle, I didn’t know enough about technology – yet,” recalls Alex.
“I was compelled by the idea that software was the one thing you could build in your bedroom, and use to serve millions of people. So, I went to Imperial and did a conversion course in Computer Science. A year later, I applied again and got in.”
Having joined us a year out of his Master’s, Alex is now CEO of a company that’s raised $50M+ in VC funding, employs 100+ people globally, and has helped settle $1B+ in claims.
