Interview with Alex Redfern from LanguaTalk
Inspired by his travels through Canada, France, Spain and Sweden during his 20s, Alex came close to starting several businesses, including a subscription box for high quality teas. However, it was his exposure to foreign languages while with a Swedish girlfriend that finally gave him the opportunity to turn his long-held desire to be an entrepreneur into reality. I couldn’t code, so I built the site using a simple WordPress theme and third party booking software. So last year I started collaborating with Don Pottinger, a friend of mine who has the tech skills I lack. Until recently, I was a solo founder without a development team, competing with established tutoring platforms that are backed by venture capital firms.
