15 Sep Financial Times: Life lessons from the couples who run start-ups
Lesley Eccles, chief executive of start-up Relish, a couples’ counselling app, is no stranger to the challenges of setting up a company. “I think any start-up experience is going to be pretty intense,” she says, speaking on the phone from a Wall Street coffee shop. “You’re regularly a few months away from running out of money.” The 46-year-old Scot launched Relish in New York this year using an engineering team based in Edinburgh. However, this time she’s doing it without her husband, Nigel Eccles, with whom she founded the fantasy sports betting site, FanDuel, in 2009.
