Tell us about your personal background. Why are you passionate about this issue? Making an idea a reality takes innovation, dedication and strong leadership. Do you have the necessary entrepreneurial skills to realize your vision?
I'm very health conscious but I don't like fruit. I feel bad knowing that I'm not getting any of the vitamins I need. Every year I grow organic blackcurrants and sell them to local hotels and restaurants. This led me to the idea of "Fruit Boosts". A concentrated vitamin drink made mainly from organic fruits. These boosts will hopefully be a concentrate which can be mixed with water or fizzy drinks, or a be chosen to drink straight.
My idea for fruit boosts came from my passion to be healthy and my selling of organic blackcurrants. This idea will help people get the vitamins they need in an organic manner, instead of in the form of a tablet (such as borocca).
I have drive, focus and enthusiasm. I am organised and creative.
