An entrepreneur at heart, I started my own sweet-selling business at school. Buying them in bulk at cheap prices meant I could sell gobstoppers and sherbert dust cheaper than my competition (the other students)!
I’ve worked in a range of creative digital businesses over the years. And I’ve learned a lot of lessons along the way. Now, my goal is to use my past experiences and knowledge to offer support to start-up businesses. Providing strategic support, mentorship, and direction.
Now, with Inc & Co, that passion for helping and supporting lives on, through our acquisition strategy where we acquire unique businesses with great teams and turn them into exceptional enterprises.
We asked Jack Mason, Group CEO of Inc & Co, some big questions to get his view on living in Spain, what he loves about Inc & Co and advice to his younger self.
At school I was known for selling chocolate bars and drinks to my fellow class mates. I actually made a good bit of money at the time (or what seemed like a lot).
It didn’t make me enough to buy that big house, but it sure was fun and definitely my first go at business.
I used to live in Manchester, a place that I really love. But now, I live in sunny Barcelona with my partner and cat. I have been there since 2022 and it’s definitely a place that feels like home now. The sangria and tapas is a lovely advantage to living in Spain.
I love Inc & Co’s people and the brands within the group. Being every great brand there are real people who care for their work so much, and thats something that makes you want to come to work every day.
Life is going to be full of twists and turns and you won’t always gets things right. You will have lots of big questions and being every issue is a silver lining.
