Next Gen Fest 2021: Thinking outside the box

Watch back: Thinking outside the box

Alisha is the Founder and CEO of Accio Homes. She has a MSc in Real Estate Investment and Finance. With the corporate world not the right fit, she decided to leave a steady, lucrative career in property and start her own business in a completely different field.

Spotting a gap in the market and the potential of a growing industry, she bootstrapped a start-up that combined her interests in smart technologies and interior design. Accio is the UK's first design-led smart lighting brand, with the mission of creating smart lights that are beautiful, simple to set up, and won’t cost the Earth.

Watch back this recorded session to hear more about Alisha's journey and her involvement at Next Gen Fest.
