What’s next for the company?
We are looking at working with other parts of Barclays to demonstrate our value. We’ve secured fresh funding and our team in London are actively hiring people to work in sales, marketing and business development. We are looking to gain a stronger foothold in the UK, Europe and Asia Pacific.
What did you get out of your time with the Barclays Accelerator programme?
Getting to work with Barclays was an incredible thrill. As a young team, we would never have been able to achieve that on our own. Engaging with other highly competitive teams also gave us a huge amount of inspiration.
You and your co-founders have worked for some large corporations. What’s the difference between that and running your own company?
Compared to working in a large business, the lows of running your own company are significantly lower. If something goes wrong, it’s devastating. You spend an enormous amount of emotional capital crawling out of it. But the highs are unbelievably high. The creativity and passion makes every day either terrifying or exhilarating. Often you can go through those emotions within 15 minutes of each other. Plus, the ability to work with a team of friends who inspire me is a luxury you don’t always have.
