I am so old skool that I was making mobile apps before Apple launched the App Store.

Professional Summary

With over 10 years of experience in the App Industry, Ben started his first mobile app agency after winning investment on a BBC TV show called "Be Your Own Boss" with the Innocent Drinks co-founder Richard Reed. Ben built the agency from just himself to over 40 full-time staff with offices in London and Bedford. He was lucky to have had apps go number 1 in over 140 countries, knock Nike off the top sport for best fitness app in 2015 and won a myriad of awards along the way.
