The BAE HQ welcomes Alston Zecha, Partner at Eight Roads.
Alston Zecha, who is a partner at Eight Roads and was the exited co-founder of Payleven, which merged with SumUp. Alston grew up in Hong Kong, having been exposed to all the different worlds around him, he moved to the UK where it was a bit different and had to try to make his mark.
He tried to build a startup which failed in his early days because he didn't know the game. Then after that he went back into the corporate world where he was very successful and then had another stab at it and that was Payleven. You might recognise what they do if you ever tried to buy something via contactless at many different places. Now he is a partner at Eight Roads, which invests in Pan European at different stages.
