Having experienced professional success in a variety of fields, you’d definitely describe Grant as the adventurous type.

Having later created a new insurance product and a collection of children’s books, Grant made his first foray into mobile products in 2012 with Star Trainer, a fitness app that topped the charts in 40 countries. He brings a breadth of experience, combined with commercial savvy and an unshakable sense of curiosity, to everything he does at Shareight.
Having left Oxford with a degree in Engineering, Henry spent 10 years working within management consulting and hedge funds. In that time he built a strong and varied professional portfolio as well as providing data-heavy retail consulting to large UK FMCG clients. A passion for all things data, combined with a belief that shopping on mobile would be big (before it was), drew Henry to the tech startup scene. His focus is on strategy and the corporate governance of the business.
