Reade Owen

Based in the heart of London, I’ve been juggling the launch of a Series ‘A’ digital startup, a part-time job and a Finance degree. 

Looking back, I’ve grown up with allure for competition. This manifested itself early in my teens through competing in national level athletics. Consequently, I moved onto strength training in the gym. Pair this with a fitness Instagram account (back when nobody was doing it) and I was able to network with the likes of Nike and others. From the age of 15, I started offering freelance photography and videography services to small businesses and individuals. I leveraged my social media presence to build a formidable client base, however, had to put my work on hold whilst completing my IB diploma. 

I spent my gap year working as a consultant for a marketing agency, and on my startup, with an MVP that launched across London back in May 2019. Since then, we managed to secure Series ‘A’ funding, with a new version of the platform in the works. 

In my downtime I’m usually found in the gym, listening to podcasts or doing research on the latest tech products and nootropics.
