Please provide examples of any previous entrepreneurial initiatives you have pioneered.
I went almost straight from being a student into business. However, at school I sold locker shelves I made in the CDT department. When I started, a friend bet me £1 I wouldn't sell any. Two days later he was my first customer, having forgotten our bet! As a student at Southampton University I founded the Green Action society to promote the aims of Friends of the Earth, Greenpeace and the People and Planet NGO. I also set up a small business selling bikes which I found and fixed from a university skip.
Beyond your existing team, who else are you working with to achieve your objectives, eg partners, advisors, mentors?
I have no one. I have some friends running companies on a similar level, one friend of one of my parents who's a company director and I can contact when needed but I 've never had a mentor and would really like one.
