James Shrager

Strategy & New Ventures @ intandem || Co-Creator @ sidekick || Founder @ TheAppLab

I identify, define and implement impactful new digital propositions for companies across a range of sectors.

I have over 11 years' experience across proposition and product development, software engineering and finance and during this time have developed a unique skillset that blends strategic thinking, technical knowledge and creativity.

Personally, I’ve built and launched several high growth digital products in gaming, financial services, publishing and social networking. I’ve successfully exited from two of these products with one achieving over 15 million downloads worldwide.

My own struggles with anxiety led me to co-found sidekick; a community creating tools, organising information and encouraging positive conversations about mental health. We are currently in the final stages of developing our first tool, designed to be a 'therapist in your pocket'.

I love the early part of the company building process and enjoy getting a new business off the ground.

I’m also a Chartered Accountant.
