Debbie Wosskow OBE is recognised as one of the most prominent serial entrepreneurs in the UK, known for successfully launching and scaling businesses in the areas of digital disruption, the sharing economy and female empowerment.
Thanks to her knowledge, track record and authority in those areas, Debbie holds a number of prominent leadership positions across associated sectors and is regularly interviewed on those subjects in the media, on TV and on radio.
She is the founder of Love Home Swap, the sharing economy website launched in 2011 that was acquired by Wyndham Worldwide in July 2017. The company is well known as one of the fastest growing digital technology companies in London.
Debbie is the co-founder and chairperson of AllBright, a unique UK funding platform designed to provide the support and finance needed for female-led businesses to launch and scale. Debbie, along with her co-founder Anna Jones (CEO at Hearst), aims to close the gender-based funding gap that currently prevents many women from launching and succeeding with their business ideas.
A long standing investor herself, Debbie has personally backed a number of female-led businesses including LifeStyler, a digital marketplace for style services, and TAP, a smart technology company that enables Event Producers and Partners to deliver a more tailored event experience.
Debbie was the Founding Chair of Sharing Economy UK (SEUK) and sits on the Mayor of London’s Business Advisory Board. In 2015, Debbie was named as one of the Evening Standard’s 1000 most influential people in London.
Hailing from a family of female entrepreneurs, her entrepreneurial journey started at the age of 25 when Debbie launched her first company called Mantra, a marketing consultancy, which she later sold to Loewy Group in 2009.
Debbie is also a Trustee of the Hampstead Theatre.
