Say hi to the Flownies – a deep-working, curious bunch on a mission to help you be more productive and inspired

Alicia Navarro
Founder and CEO
Alicia is the founder and leader at FLOWN. She led her previous company Skimlinks for 11 years – it was pretty successful, and was acquired during the Covid lockdown. Her background is in computer science, and she’s now a serial entrepreneur. During and after her time at Skimlinks, Alicia became fascinated by the physical and mental conditions necessary to achieve our human potential, which is how the idea for FLOWN came about.

Bernie Sumption
CTO
Bernie loves building beautiful, easy-to-use software.

Outside of work, you should check out his A.I. tweeting, photo-taking catflap.
