About alex

I've worked in a few start-ups including two of my own ventures (a kitchenware distribution business and a mental health app) and being a founding member of a London-based investment fund. Thanks to having worked in the venture arena, I have built a broad skillset including business development, corporate finance, backend development (python) and data analysis.

I recently worked for a large UK bank where (as a product manager) I helped build a successful customer insight product. After realizing the wider market potential of what I was building, I left the company in August to build a viable product that can be used more widely in the finance sector. I'm looking for an ambitious and technical co-founder to help me built out an MVP. I'm currently speaking with a potential cornerstone client with which we could test the product in Q1/Q2 next year.

There's a lot of opportunity in this space so I'm open to other ideas. Please reach out! https://www.linkedin.com/in/alexmealing/
