“It can be hard to give up control”

 

In this episode we speak with fellow Yorkshireman, James Gupta. Founder and CEO of Synap - The revision app used by 1 in 4 medical students in the UK.

 

Like most great inventions, Synap was born from first-hand frustrations. 3 years ago James was a medical student at The University of Leeds where he identified issues with the way revision was taking place, so like all great businessmen, when he had a problem and no known solution, he created one. 

 

3 years since it was founded, Synap now has 5,000 daily users, 13 million questions have been answered, and its users include; engineers, pilots, medical students and A-level students. Future plans include white-labelling and using the software within other industries, such as the work they’re doing with ‘MyTaxi’ in Dublin where they’ve seen driver pass rates increase massively since introducing the new system.

 

In this episode we talk about:

  • Outsourcing

  • Crowdfunding

  • User Acquisition

  • Staying local

  • Incubators

  • Accelerators

  • And as always plenty more...
