Simon Jacobs

I am 24 years old and originally from Manchester. I studied in Nottingham and started my first business whilst at university; Uni2 (

Our aim was to revolutionize student living, providing a full suite of services all under one roof.
We successfully raised 4 rounds of investment, worked with Microsoft and created a franchise model and brand for the future. We were able to make our initial big ripple in Nottingham due to our fresh approach and our focus purely on students and therefore our digital marketing led approach.

I then took a step back from the business to do marketing consultancy for other businesses and become a startup adviser.

Now, I've taken a really exciting role at Camelot to help them with their youth marketing and wider strategy and innovation piece as they look into the future.
