Co-founder & CEO
Daniel is a data-driven entrepreneur, previously studying decision-making as a behavioural economist at LSE. Alongside his studies, he co-founded student accelerator programme, KickStart Global.
After graduating, he spent 3 years advising retail and tech companies at Bank of America, before leading commercial strategy at VC-backed scale-ups (Labster and goHenry).
Inspired by unresolved challenges in retail and the role of embedded finance, Daniel joined Entrepreneur First to co-found Flare with Alex.
Co-founder & CTO
Alex is a highly capable full-stack software engineer, with 5+ years building software in fintech and payments.
Studying geography at the University of Exeter, Alex taught himself how to code to launch his own start-ups. 4 years later, he was leading engineering teams at 11:FS to build world-class embedded finance products.
Frustrated by the way the financial system is geared towards consumer credit and impulsive behaviour, Alex joined Entrepreneur First to co-found Flare with Daniel.
