Jon Prideaux is the CEO at BOKU who, on 20 November 2017, went public on AIM at an initial £125m valuation and quickly popped to £160m.

Boku’s platform brings merchants and mobile operators together to transform 5 billion mobile phone subscribers into the world’s largest pool of customers. That's more users than Visa and Mastercard combined! 

Jon provides the following insights:

  • How to smoothly transition out of - or indeed into - the role of CEO
  • How to plan and execute an IPO
  • Why he believes company leaders need to view their IPO as an “entrance” not an “exit”!
  • How Boku developed a consistent culture across the globe even when they acquired local businesses
  • How Jon is motivating Boku’s senior team to drive the business forward rather than resting on their laurels after the IPO
