Ankur Shah

A highly experienced cross-sector entrepreneur.

A well-known and award-winning entrepreneur; I have built a number of fast-growth businesses from ground-up.

A former criminal barrister by profession, previous businesses have included Techlightenment, a pioneering social technology business, sold to Experian in 2011. And more recently Mahabis, founded in 2014; a multi-award-winning lifestyle brand that famously sold a million pairs of shoes to over 100 countries, generating over $80m in sales in a little over 4 years. Mahabis was sold to investors in 2019.

I am an active and enthusiastic industry advisor, working not only with other fast growth companies, but also working with everyone from leading sports organisations to globally recognised universities.

I have spoken regularly in the media and at industry events, appearances include everything from the BBC and Sky to appearing with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at their first commercial engagement.

Both myself and my work have been frequently profiled in both the domestic and international press.

I am currently consulting and actively exploring new projects.
