Helen started Dotty Fish 13 years ago, when her son Josh was given a pair of baby shoes as a gift. She wanted to buy some more but struggled to find any at a reasonable price; this inspired her to start her own range of baby shoes. Dotty Fish now exports to many countries in Europe and worldwide.
Jem grew up in Africa, where the shortage of retail products and abundance of raw materials meant that he would often watch his mother making all kinds of skincare, haircare and natural remedies. This inspired him to create his own business using ethical and organic ingredients. Jem started his business in his bedroom in Wales, and is now exporting worldwide to over 90 countries.
Erin launched Niré Beauty whilst studying International Trade at university. She struggled to find good quality, cruelty free make up brushes for sensitive skin, so she started her own brand. Today, the team speaks 7 languages and over 60% of sales are from outside the UK.
