Asi Sharabi and Alex Klein talk going global in episode 1 of Founder to Founder

There are some challenges all founders face when growing their business. In our new Founder to Founder series we explore these with 10 companies on our Future Fifty and Upscale programmes.

The series features one founder interviewing another, including Kano, Lost My Name, Metail, Lyst, Growth Street, Secret Escapes, Brandwatch, Bloom and Wild, Sybenetix and Crowdcube.

Episode One – Going Global

In our first episode Alex Klein, Co-Founder and CEO of Kano, and Asi Sharabi, Co-Founder and CEO of Lost My Name,  discuss the challenges they faced in taking their company global.

Kano (now on our Future Fifty programme having graduated from Upscale) ship their ‘make your own’ computer kits to over 40 countries worldwide and Lost My Name (also on Future Fifty) also send their products worldwide, translating their personalised storytelling product to 11 different languages.  But it wasn’t a walk in the park.
