Some of the People We've Helped

Ideas Refined

After nearly 15 years raising 3 children, Rosetta wanted to get into the fashion world, but without a network, she was ignored and mass online marketplaces offered no support for the money they took. Through our help, we introduced her to shadow one of the UK’s leading luxury fashion designers. She now runs her own fashion business - and is finally getting the attention she deserves!

Business Plan Sorted

Mary was an accountant, but after years of dreaming of running her own accessories designer business, we set her up to shadow Susannah – a top handbag designer with revenues of over £3million a year. Mary has now moved country, she owns a factory and employs 10 staff. Oh and she’s been featured in the FT!

Reality Checked

Antonio had planned to open a wine bar until he shadowed one! The reality didn’t match his dream and for him, the work involved didn’t justify the profits made. In his own words:

‘This is a risk free way to understand how the business you’re thinking of running actually works.”
