Karl Blanks

Co-founder of Conversion Rate Experts

What I’m working on

We founded Conversion Rate Experts (CRE) in 2006 and were acquired by the publicly listed growth consultancy Next 15 in 2020. Over the past few years, we have transitioned the running of CRE to two of our long-standing team members. We, Ben Jesson and Karl Blanks, remain at CRE and Next 15 as advisors and Entrepreneurs-In-Residence, exploring new ventures and investment opportunities.

Experience and awards

Other stuff

I am a scientist, with a PhD from Cambridge University, England, where I enjoyed having a bedroom that featured on many postcard photos. (The outside of it—definitely not the inside.)

I’m interested in the following subjects:

At the Queen’s reception at Buckingham Palace.

At the Googleplex in Silicon Valley with Vint Cerf (the inventor of the internet).

Speaking at a conference at Google.
