The Bits & Bytes Series - Adam French

Hosted by Jessica Ge

Graduating from LSE in 2007, Adam French isn’t your typical finance hardo. 💸

From directing commodities and derivatives at Goldman Sachs for seven years, you could say that Adam learned a thing or two about finance and entrepreneurship. Leading him to co-found the wealth management startup, Scalable Capital in 2015, where investing has never been easier than pressing a few buttons. Hear how he grew Scalable Capital into Europe’s largest digital wealth manager backed by companies like BlackRock and Tencent and how it is now sitting on a $1.4 billion valuation, making them LSE’s 7th unicorn. 🦄

Then hear about Adam’s return to school at Houghton Street Ventures where he is  helping LSE entrepreneurs like himself as he moves from being a unicorn to a beaver. 🐿

Check out Scalable Capital: (Germany) (Austria) (UK - no longer in use)
