From the Founder – Glyn Estebanez

I was a General Surgeon when I had the idea for Nexus Labs. I have always loved education and digital technology and could see the vast potential to make a real difference for students around the world through the use of online learning.

After leaving my career as a surgeon I was awarded a prestigious scholarship to study for an MBA at Imperial College Business School. This opened my eyes to the startup world and ultimately helped me launch Nexus Labs, develop our first online learning platform and be named In Forbes as one of the Top 20 Tech for Social Good Startups to watch.

I love mentoring and supporting the growth and development of passionate people who share our ambition of making a real difference in the EdTech world.
