Hi! I'm Sophia!


I am a non-technical founder, and I have co-created apps and algorithms that have been used by thousands, won App of the Day by Mashable, and were featured by Inc, the BBC and more.

I've set up the Tech For Non-Techies education community to help other non-technical founders go from idea to thriving product and build their dreams. It doesn't have to be as hard as the tech bros would have us believe! 

I've contributed to the Financial Times, The Guardian and Forbes on entrepreneurship and technology. I have also guest lectured at Chicago Booth, London Business School and the London College of Fashion to name a few.

I love helping entrepreneurs and I've advised Chicago Booth’s New Venture Challenge and the Microsoft x London College of Fashion incubator, as well as many ventures and investors.

I hold an MBA from Chicago Booth, and a BSc (Hons) in Politics from Bristol.

I also speak Russian and French. I split my time between London and the South of France, where I play tennis and sail with huge enthusiasm and very little skill.
