David Hickson

Director of Strategic Development

What did you do before the factory?

Founders Factory is my fifth start-/scale-up, four of which I've been on the founding team of. I've been involved in a billion-dollar exit, a total failure and almost everything in-between. Love tech. Love early-stage.

What do you do at the factory?

I run Strategic Development. Our obsession is the strategic growth of both the Factory and the startups we work with. In the main, that means the art and science of capital raising. We are the single best department in Founders Factory. Ask anyone.

What makes you a good founder?

Because I know that perfect is intractable, that a startup's success is essentially stochastic and that you can only control inputs.
