Julia's entrepreneurial journey
With a background in business development with corporate giant Reuters, Julia managed major investment banking clients including as Morgan Stanley and Deutsche Bank, and delivered global marketing and technology projects in both London and Singapore.
But when the dot.com boom kicked off in the late 90's, Julia saw her chance to be a part of the revolution, so she took her first leap into the start-up world and never looked back. Joining pioneering local information website UpMyStreet.com as Business Development Director, it wasn't long before the business was sold to uSwitch.com and Julia was running it as a subsidiary business, with the company ultimately being bought out by property data giant Zoopla.
