Would you like to meet one of Wales’ leading entrepreneurs to gain their valuable insight about growing a successful business? Enter the Business Wales ‘Everyday Entrepreneur’ competition and you could WIN a mentoring session with Laura Tenison MBE, Founder and CEO of JoJo Maman Bébé – the UK’s leading boutique mother and baby brand.
After launching her mail order maternity & baby business in 1993, Laura has grown JoJo Maman Bébé into a national and international brand, with 80 stores across the UK and Ireland – employing more than 750 people in Britain and another 4,000 indirectly around the world.
Laura has hands-on experience of growing an underfunded start-up into her global mother and baby brand, predominantly via organically funded re-investment. The company now trades across the world with a new distribution center in New Jersey to service their growing USA business.
In your session (lasting up to 2 hours) you may ask Laura questions about your business or business plan. She will give you practical advice, honest feedback and ideas. She will challenge your business strategy and marketing campaign, offer advice on protecting your IP and making the most of your options to start or expand your company to the next level.
