A Chat With Charles Armitage, CEO of Florence



Gen caught up with Charles, who is CEO of Florence: an online marketplace where self-employed nurses can find high-paying shifts across the UK, removing the hassle of booking through agencies. 

Prior to starting Florence, Charles was working as a doctor in South London mainly in the fields of Emergency Medicine and Surgery. Charles decided to start Florence following some of his own experiences working as a locum doctor in the NHS. He found it frustrating how he had no choice over the work he could pick and had to do whatever he was given by his agency. He also hated the way doctors and nurses were treated when they arrived for a new shift. And the rest is history!

A Chat with Marshall Hughes from Passel



I caught up with Marshall Hughes, the CEO and founder of Passel.

Passel began with a throwaway line:  “One day you’ll be shopping in the hardware store and your phone will ping with a message that Mrs Jones, who lives around the corner from you, has just bought a shovel online. If you deliver it on the way home, we’ll give you a $10 gift voucher”.  

Of course, that hasn’t happened, so he figured he’d go and do it himself.

Two Sided Marketplaces & The Key Metrics You Should Be Measuring



Two sided marketplaces are where you have two distinct user groups: you have supply on one side and demand on the other and generally in a hyperlocal area. Examples around the world include: Deliveroo, Uber, OpenTable, Turo, Quiqup etc. Where they all have thousands and even millions of people on one side looking for something in their local area. Like on Glamazon (www.glamazonapp.com) where a user is looking for a professional to come and do a manicure on demand in their home and a manicurist is looking for work in their local area.
