Alex Hughes

Founder, Shift Momentum | Shifties

Founder of Shift Momentum, an Entrepreneurial Business Consultancy that serves the businesses we have founded, invested in and the projects we are invited to work on.

Alex is also the founder of Shifties – The Micro Business Community and an investor in multiple start-ups across sectors.

It is safe to say he is passionate about the power of entrepreneurship; “it is my belief that building businesses which solve problems and create opportunities for those around us is the aim of the game. I am now lucky enough to be involved in businesses across different sectors that achieve exactly that result.”

Having left school before picking up even one GCSE’s, Alex has found the process of starting and building businesses a vehicle for personal development. As a result, he is dedicated to championing others to ignite ideas, launch businesses and accelerate growth.  Entrepreneurship has armed Alex with an education which school simply could not provide and has created opportunities for him that he never knew existed.

Alex is an advocate for collaboration and paving the way for the next generation of entrepreneurs. He has recently worked with other organisations to develop a programme that will take that message and solution to young, disadvantaged people, supporting them in taking steps toward their most uniquely optimal direction.
