*Guest feature from Igniting Enterprise (Plymouth University’s student lead entrepreneurship society)
We at Igniting Enterprise are incredibly happy to announce our next event in our series of guest talks (in collaboration with both the Plymouth Business and Marketing Societies), this time with inventor and Managing Director of Gummee Ltd Jodine Boothby, at 5pm-6pm on the 22nd of March in Babbage room 213!
Jodine is the incredibly creative, hard-working and passionate inventor of the worlds first baby teething mitten the Gummee Glove, which in the space of about 5 years she has turned from a eureka moment watching her son chewing on a sock to easy his teething pain as a baby, to a business with an annual turnover of over £200,000, with products currently being sold at retailers such as Toys R Us and Argos!
Jodine will be coming down to the University to discuss her story in setting up Gummee Ltd, from having to sell her jewellery in order to raise funds for an initial run of her products, to successfully launching at a trade show in Birmingham, and much more, whilst also giving her tips on how to successfully market yourself as a future employee and entrepreneur!
This event is definitely not one to miss, so make sure to show your interest via Eventbrite, or through the Igniting Enterprise, Business Society or Marketing Society social media pages, in order not to miss out!
