Laurence Krieger, Ben Nacca, Daniela Seitz

Laurence Krieger is the chief operating officer (COO) at Tide, the online current account for small and medium sized businesses. Krieger has more than 12 years of experience working in senior roles at fast-growing fintech start-ups.

Prior to Tide, he was COO of Revolut, where he helped to rapidly scale the business from initial start-up to over 800,000 customers. He was previously founder and CEO of payment business Cobalt where he delivered high profitability and grew annual revenues to more than £100m. He launched one of the first prepaid cards into the UK with Moneysupermarket and has also held senior roles at Yahoo! UK and IE.

Ben Nacca is an accountant but is nothing like the stereotype you have visualised in your mind! He has worked in the accounting industry for almost a decade and is CEO at ConeAccounting.

In growing his cloud-based accountancy, Ben has tailored each service to suit the individual needs of each one of his clients. The entire ethos of Cone is to make your life as a business owner, easier. If you know Cone, you''ll know how much we love using apps to streamline processes and increase efficiency.

Daniela Seitz co-founded Twigdoo with CTO Matthew Wilson after they both spotted the huge inefficiencies and opportunity in sales lead handling and management. While billion-dollar companies like Salesforce and Marketo are providing automation tools and software, they are still missing the human element in qualifying and closing a sale – this is what Twigdoo offers.

Twigdoo’s aim is to deliver excellent lead management to their clients helping them to optimise conversion rates and streamline their sales process. With backing from founders and investors of LoveFilm, SecretEscapes, Zoopla, Graze and many more, Twigdoo is on a fast growth trajectory after having launched in August 2018.
