Alastair founded Huddle, his third internet start-up, with Andy McLoughlin as he was frustrated by existing enterprise technology’s inability to help people work together. Spending millions of dollars on a SharePoint implementation, only to watch it fail dismally, was the final straw. In contrast, collaboration apps in our social lives just worked. As a result, Huddle was born. Since setting up the company in 2006, Alastair has grown Huddle to almost 200 people in London, San Francisco, New York and Washington DC. He's raised in excess of US$40 million in funding and seen sales triple year-on-year.
