Why is she impressive?
When a start-up has secured over $30m funding, including one of 2015’s biggest investment rounds, you know it’s got to be on to something big. This business in question is MOVE Guides and it’s the brainchild of Brynne Herbert; a rising tech entrepreneur whose company makes it easier for firms to move employees for recruitment, relocating, projects or expatriate assignments. Herbert, who started the business after completing an MBA from London Business School, has already achieved more than most entrepreneurs in their first three years; having established a team of 75 employees and set up offices in London, San Francisco, Hong Kong, and New York. She has also built an impressive client portfolio which includes names such as Tesco, King and SurveyMonkey. Now supporting staffing moves to over 100 cities across six continents, Herbert is one of just a small number of female start-up founders making headway in the UK’s tech scene.
