An Oxford graduate with a degree in Mathematics, Simon Sacerdoti was one of the founders of Avalon in 1992, a multiplayer game world (RPG) in the very early days of the consumer internet. In 1997, Simon qualified as a chartered accountant, and moved into corporate finance, where he advised numerous startups during the dotcom boom. In 2011 he founded WeSwap with Jared Jesner. After a lengthy closed beta in which they ironed out many bugs and operational issues, they officially launched in July 2013, and are doing a brilliant job in disrupting the travel money sector!
Simon visited us at our office; we ate falafels and had a lovely -brief- chat where he shared some great insights from his experience in the startup world.
