Two young entrepreneurs have shown off their fledgling enterprise to business leaders at a networking breakfast.
Rosie Judd and Iola Palmer-Stirling of the Tunbridge Wells Girls’ Grammar Young Enterprise team joined the Royal Spa Chapter of Business Networking International last Thursday to introduce Ame Via, which makes bags. The girls secured ‘a number of orders’ for Christmas gifts.
Ame Via managing director Rosie said: “It was really great to be able to talk to local business people. “We got lots of tips about how to make Ame Via a success, which we will be putting into practice over the coming months. We’ve been selling at local Christmas fairs, but this has given us some new ideas.’
Julian Weekes of BNI Royal Spa said: ‘That Rosie and Iola were willing to get here for our 6am meeting shows real determination. Their presentation to the BNI members was incredibly polished – we were all impressed at how confident they are and their commitment to growing their business.’
