Our founder Alex Broadley entered a competition at the beginning of July held by TransferWise, who were looking for 20 under 20 upcoming young entrepreneurs in the UK and Ireland. The 20 chosen attended an event at TransferWise's office in London where Alex got to meet the other winners. He will now received mentorship and is attending their next event in December to meet the Chief Secretary to the Treasury.
Those eager weeks of waiting to hear were hard, but when the news came through, that the judges had picked Alex as one of the 20 stand out young entrepreneurs it just didn't feel real to him, but it was.
"It was a great honour to be chosen as one of the TransferWises's 20 upcoming entrepreneurs and after only launching Small Wallets a few weeks ago. Building a business isn't always easy so it nice to get the appreciation to motivate you to keep going. The event I attended in London was a great success and I got to see what others where doing which was very interesting. This has made me want to push myself even further and see what I can create."
