Full biography of Nick Brackenbury

Nick Brackenbury is a technology entrepreneur and the co-founder and CEO of NearSt, which is an e-commerce technology start-up company with a mission to get people back into their local shops. With their unique technology, Nick’s company is revolutionising the idea of local shopping where it is actually easier and faster to purchase items locally rather than ordering them online.

Nick is a former Account Director at Ogilvy previously working across a number of high-profile digital clients including Jaguar Land Rover, Nestle and BP helping them with their London 2012 Olympic Games sponsorship.

He is fascinated by behavioural economics and how this correlates to the high street and e-commerce.

Nick’s goal is to get people worldwide back into high street shopping and currently NearSt has over one hundred quality high street retailers with one hour delivery or Click&Collect in London. He firmly believes that it should be easier to get what you want from a real shop rather than online.

Nick has won several awards including Get in the Ring – Winner Western Europe (Most promising Start-up), RetailWeek – Startup of the Week, LondonBookFair – Innovation Award and Retail Business Technology Event – Innovation Winner.
