See how two entrepreneurs, Polly Marsh from Cuddledry and Jacob Hill from The Lazy Camper, kickstarted their companies’ global growth with a little help from DHL and the British Chambers of Commerce.
Jacob is a full time student at the university of Huddersfield, where he is studying Enterprise Development — a course endorsed by Dragons’ Den star Theo Paphitis. From sweet selling to developing his own products, Jacob has been involved with enterprise since the age of 14. He now has his own business, The Lazy Camper, and recently appeared on BBC3’s Be Your Own Boss.
Struggling through bath times with wet and wriggling newborns, friends Helen Wooldridge and Polly Marsh spotted a gap in the market for a hands-free toweling tool — a unique hooded baby apron worn by parents. Bath times have never been the same since. Polly is responsible for overseeing production, manufacturing and product design. She is also the numbers lady. Cuddledry is sold all over the globe.
