What did you do before the factory?
Before the Factory I worked on bringing Artificial Intelligence (AI) to market at IBM Watson. In this role I ran sprint projects with governments, corporates and charities, helping them understand AI and identify where they might use it, before building the technology into their organisations. This spanned a wide range of activities, including running visioning workshops, customer research, building business models, creating AI roadmaps and building prototypes.
What do you do at the factory?
I provide the link between our corporate partners and the startups at Founders Factory, matchmaking the best ideas with the most relevant opportunities. My role involves helping position startup use cases, identifying and making introductions to the the right industry partners and designing ways for our ecosystem partners to work together. My focus is on Artificial Intelligence, Health and EdTech sectors.
