Alan dove straight into entrepreneurship after receiving both his Bachelor and Master’s of Science in Computer Science from the UK’s University of Durham. In 2013, Alan co-founded Accredible, alongside CEO Danny King, to address the growing need for secure and trusted digital accreditation at a range of organizations including higher education and nonprofit associations. Alan, along with Danny, believe that individuals should be evaluated holistically and organizations should be taking advantage of every technology to better identify the most capable team members. Before co-founding Accredible, Alan launched two other organizations: PUBme Ltd and Entrepreneurs Durham.
