Alex James

Corporate Development Manager

What did you do before the factory?

I'm a corporate lawyer by trade. Before Founders Factory I was advising startups and scaleups on venture capital and fundraising and later stage companies on mergers & acquisitions.

What do you do at the factory?

I work with our investments team to agree deals for startups to join the Accelerator and spin out companies from the Incubator. I give portfolio companies a commercial steer on their legal issues and put them in touch with advisors when needed, as well as support on fundraising and cap tables. I negotiate deals for Founders Factory international expansion and new sectors and partners as well as helping to run Founders Factory legal.

What makes you a good founder?

Learning fast.
