Ali Zaidi

For the last 15 years, Ali has been building products, teams and processes at some of the most exciting startups in the UK and elsewhere including Maxeler, Duedil, BMLL and Felix. He’s also founded several technology businesses. His latest venture is Dripl – a service that lets users build cross-platform quiz apps without writing any code.

Ali also helped set up and run a startup embedded in the Department of International Trade (DIT). During his time there he introduced the large public sector organisation to established startup practices such as Lean Product Development – a way of working that proved transformative and became part of the DIT culture.
