ALICE BENTINCK

co-Founder, Entrepreneur first

Alice started her career in McKinsey and on the day she was going to sign to start at google, got convinced by her business partner Matt to just start this with her instead, and though it was incredibly tough starting up - she’s never looked back. 

They recruit 100 technologists every 6 months, put them into teams, help them develop ideas - but unusually give money to people who might never have met before, who might not even have an idea, and get them to just start. More recently they raised a fresh £40m fund to invest into people, to turn them into companies.
