Chris Persson


Chris was entrepreneurial from a young age. His first job was as a plate cleaner in a bakery at the age of 14 from which he swiftly moved through the ranks to become chief cinnamon bun maker!

Bitten by the entrepreneurial bug Chris hasn’t looked back since. From selling bicycles and environmentally friendly truck washing equipment in Stockholm to owning a pub in London, Chris later went on to join the innovative executive education consultancy group, BTS.

With a strong digital background, Chris pioneered digital healthcare solutions at Vielife (sold to Cigna Healthcare) and introduced digital solutions to thousands of restaurants and millions of diners at Bookatable (sold to Michelin).
