I’m Founder of CEO of Beam. Beam is the world’s first crowdfunding platform for homeless people. Funded by the Mayor of London and the UK’s leading tech entrepreneurs, Beam has proven a powerful new model to help homeless people get into work.
Beam has been covered widely including by the BBC, The Times, The FT, The Independent, London Evening Standard, Sky, Time Out and others and has been named by The Guardian as one of the most important social tech innovations of 2018.
Before Beam, I was CEO of JustPark, the world’s largest peer-to-peer parking company with over 5 customers in the UK. JustPark has grown to be one of the leading lights of collaborative consumption and the ‘Sharing Economy’ and is backed by Index Ventures and BMW i Ventures, the venture capital arm of BMW.
I remain a board advisor at JustPark and Spacehive – a civic crowdfunding platform working to bring new life to towns and cities and by empowering ordinary people to raise money for projects that are close to their hearts.
