How I Started My Business

Izzy Wheels started off as a college project in 2016 when I was in my final year in Art College. I was inspired by a brief that asked me to ‘Empower the lives of people living with a long-term lifestyle-related health condition’. Immediately I thought of my sister, Izzy, who was born with spina bifida and has been a wheelchair user all of her life. It always bothered her that her chair was the first thing that people noticed about her but it wasn’t a reflection of her personality. She has always had a very positive relationship with her chair …

The UK Focus on Brexit: Brexit will bring chaos but as an investor it won’t put me off

If I could vote for Britain’s EU status from an eight hour time zone away, I would vote to keep the UK in Europe for many reasons. However, as an American and an investor in startup tech companies in the UK and throughout Europe, I must deal with the reality of the situation and assess: Is this going to make London and UK-based businesses less attractive to me?

The answer: unlikely.

The UK and London technology scene is robust, and companies and entrepreneurs are resilient. There may even be some long-term advantages to Brexit.

In the short-term, however, there is likely to be …

The UK Focus on Brexit: Why flexible working is a vital part of Britain’s Brexit survival guide

As we edge nearer to March 29th, Britain’s formal date for leaving the European Union, many questions remain over how the country will continue to compete on the global stage. With Brexit uncertainty continuing to dominate the news agenda, it’s become ever more apparent that whatever happens over the next few weeks will shape the course of the UK’s future, its businesses and its workforce for decades to come.

With many of the country’s vital industries heavily relying on skilled international workers to fill vacancies, employers are becoming increasingly concerned about restricted access to talent. When coupled with the wider sense …

Making your old appliances the greenest they can be…

Thanks to a number of campaigns and awareness strategies over the years, the world is far more environmentally-conscious than ever before. There’s no escaping the images of our oceans stuffed with plastic waste, or the plummeting air quality in our major cities. Naturally, no one wants to live in such conditions, and so, we’re seeing a rise of movements against issues like pollution and single-use plastics.

But while you might be recycling your cans and plastics, and you may be hopping on public transport instead of using the car so much, have you taken a look at your home appliances recently? …

The dirty dozen: 12 books every entrepreneur should read

As with most things in life, the more experience you gain, the better you become. But what if you can't – or don't want – to put in the required time?

Luckily we humans are a bright bunch, and we've learnt how to evolve not just from our own experience, but also from the experience of others.

It has been said that knowledge is power, and while storytelling  has inspired and informed people from the dawn of time; the inflection point of our evolution was the advent of reading and writing, allowing knowledge to be passed on from generation to generation. With …

Ever thought of starting your own microbrewery? The energy experts at Flogas tell you how.

The craft beer business is booming in the UK.

Individual flavours – and brewing practices – are being championed by microbreweries across the country.  From tart ‘sours’ to ‘coffee porters’ and everything in between, the craft beer movement has seen a huge growth in sales over the past few years and is in fact now estimated to make up 6.5% of all beer sales in the UK.

With more than 2,000 microbreweries now in production, the craft beer scene is showing little sign of slowing down. But when it comes to creating quality over quantity, there’s no mistaking that running a microbrewery can …
