Mutli-award winning tech entrepreneur Charlotte Pearce, 27, has been the CEO and Founder of her successful company 'Inkpact' for over three years. Inkpact is an innovative technology platform that allows brands to embed thoughtfulness and care into their marketing strategies at scale. Charlotte, inspired by entrepreneurship from a young age, is on a mission to bring the heart and head of business together.
As a millennial business owner her message is clear: lead with love and prioritize authentic, human communication in business. Charlotte's unique strength as a leader and as an inspiring role model, reaches into several realms; young women in tech, young entrepreneurs and social enterprise, all the way into big corporates seeking to innovate and adapt their communications for the modern day. With Inkpact now running a Salesforce app, Charlotte and her team have created a platform that brings humans and technology closer together. The app allows email campaigns to be transcribed by hand, into beautiful handwritten letters with the help of a community of freelance creatives (The Scribe Tribe) – all at the touch of a button. Real campaigns, real jobs, real people, delighting thousands of customers through the power of handwritten communication.
Not only does Charlotte provide a personal touch to her clients’ marketing campaigns, she also provides regular, flexible and meaningful work to hundreds of remote creatives, around the UK and world-wide. The scribe's role is equal opportunity and The Scribe Tribe Community come from all walks of life; entrepreneurs, passionate artists, retirees, students and stay-at-home mums. Some of her members have even faced circumstances that make a normal 9-5 impossible, such as those recovering from chronic illness, rehabilitation post- incarceration and other difficulties.
With a passion for technology, social impact, and doing things differently, Charlotte has built a multi-million-pound company from the ground up. She is considered 'one to watch' by Richard Branson and has been named in the Forbes 30 under 30, Maserati 100 and Young Entrepreneurs list 2016. Charlotte is considered amongst the 15 most influential women in technology in the world, alongside Sheryl Sandberg. She has featured in Stylist, The Sunday Times, Forbes, The Guardian and many more.
