Alice Bentinck MBE, Entrepreneur First: from raising goats to incubating global start-ups
Alice Bentinck MBE has helped catalyse over 75 start-up companies around the world via her incubator 'Entrepreneur First'. With investment from illustrious business leaders including Reid Hoffman of LinkedIn, who is now also a board member, Entrepreneur First focuses on funding ambitious individuals across Europe and Asia - and started from the so-called Silicon Roundabout in London's Old Street. Alice now also runs Code First: Girls, an organisation dedicated to helping female university students of arts subjects learn skills to allow them to work in the technology sector. And it all started with raising goats.
In this episode of Women Tech Charge, Alice talks to Anne Marie Imafidon about her journey in the tech industry - including what she did when her peers told her she was crazy.
