Co-Founder & CEO
The first of the Grind’s, Shoreditch Grind was born when David Abrahamovitch enlisted his friend Kaz, a DJ from Melbourne with a passion for coffee, to help turn his father’s mobile phone shop, a stand-alone perfectly circular building perched on the edge of Old Street Roundabout, into an Espresso Bar. Grind now has four sites across London, and having just closed a £1.2m crowd fund, is set for it’s next round of expansion.
A UCL Economics graduate, Abrahamovitch has extensive business experience including being CTO at InterResolve, an insurance/legal business set up to challenge the legal industry in dispute handling. Abrahamovitch was part of a founding team of four that raised in excess of £10m in funding, mainly from VC fund Balderton Capital, and went on to scale the business to around 50 people, handling tens of thousands of disputes.
