Debbie Wosskow OBE
Founder and CEO of Love Home Swap, co-founder of AllBright and chairman of Sharing Economy UK
Debbie Wosskow OBE is recognised as one of the most prominent serial entrepreneurs in the UK, known for successfully launching and scaling businesses in the areas of digital disruption, the sharing economy and female empowerment.
She is the founder and CEO at Love Home Swap, the sharing economy website that she launched in 2011. The company has 100,000+ properties listed in more than 150 countries and is hailed as one of the fastest growing digital technology companies in London.
Wosskow is also the co-founder and chairperson of AllBright, a unique UK funding platform designed to provide the support and finance needed for female-led businesses to launch and scale. Wosskow, along with her co-founder Anna Jones (ex-CEO at Hearst), aims to close the gender-based funding gap that currently prevents many women from launching and succeeding with their business ideas. A long-standing investor herself, Wosskow has personally backed a number of female-led businesses.
Wosskow is the chairman of Sharing Economy UK (SEUK), sits on the Mayor of London’s Business Advisory Board, and is also a Trustee of the Hampstead Theatre.
Hailing from a family of female entrepreneurs, Wosskow’s entrepreneurial journey started at the age of 25 when she launched her first company called Mantra, a marketing consultancy, which she later sold to Loewy Group in 2009.
