Ben Brabyn’s had a fascinating career across multiple touchpoints with entrepreneurship. He’s …
set up and sold his own company;
represented entrepreneurs for global investment at the DTI;
headed Level39, London’s biggest fintech entrepreneurship hub;
created a company to connect entrepreneurs to people who wouldn’t typically inhabit that world.
This gives him unique insights that most founders don’t get. And the beauty of it is that he openly and humbly shares these in a very thoughtful way.
In this episode of the Karmic Capitalist, Ben shares his stories and some of the things he’s learned along the way.
Such as the dangers of trying to revolutionise your sector without a deep balance sheet.
Or the effectiveness and positive impact that can be made while building rationally, but selling to the heart.
But I found the discussion around GenieShares especially interesting. How a simple (but not easy) task of giving away 1% of your share capital can be transformational for you, the recipient, and your company.
And we never got to talk about the abseiling world record he broke with the Royal marines. Next time.
