Helping Startups Scale Up, From Seed to Exit – James Croyston – S6E32

Delaying life in the hope that you’ll have a good retirement was not the best sort of route forward so James made an extremely drastic choice to move to another continent with his 18-month-old and wife without jobs.

This week we’re super excited to be chatting with James Croyston, Director of Founders Law and was previously their senior counsel. He completed his BA in Psychology at the University of Manchester before his LLB and LPC at the City University of London.

James’ career has spanned a wide range of industries, including regulated and non-regulated, working with enterprise, government and startup clients, in private practice, in-house, consultancy, and as General Counsel, Founder, and CEO.
