London Entrepreneurs Network Bio
Tell us about your entrepreneurial journey: from the start up to now
In 2009, I moved to the UK, speaking no English, and came to study at university. After much hard work and dedication, I almost got a degree. “Almost? What do you mean almost, why didn’t you get a degree?” is probably what you are thinking right now. See, the reason is because I didn’t attend my final exam due to the fact that I had already started my events business. I started running events in 2012 and formed the company in 2013. In the three years since, we have gone from having 1200 members to over 30,000 members become a part of the London Entrepreneurs Network (LEN). What many people do not know, is that prior to LEN, I started a business doing voucher codes, and before I even moved to the UK I ran a jewellery business in Iran.
