    #89: Making Allergy Kits More Accessible for Schools – Zak Marks

    In this episode, I spoke with Zak Marks, the co-founder behind Kitt Medical, an
    all-in-one anaphylaxis prevention and treatment system for schools - like a
    defibrillator, but for allergies

    We covered:

    * How Zak started on his journey firstly trying to reinvent allergy medical
    devices to later shifting his focus on making the existing allergy devices
    more accessible and reframing the problem


    * How he tested his proposition to doubling down on schools as the best way to
    start gaining traction with his service and how he is scaling the business
    not coming from a medical background himself


    * More generally - Zak's experience on selling his services within businesses
    and public sector as a socially motivated business and how he gains that
    extra buy in for them to actually purchase

    for emerging start-ups.

    * How Laura started Financielle as a small Instagram-based community posting
    memes, to then selling financial budgeting tools in the form of PDFs and
    Google Sheets to people who wanted to manage their money better, selling 500
    of them at £50 each just from Instagram!
    * How she built an incredibly hyper focused community of people on Instagram
    who wanted more female-focused financial guidance
    * Where she sees Financielle going as this is a massive problem they are
    solving

    #87: Growing a Health Business Helping over 20,000 Americans with Sustained Weight Loss – Isabelle Kenyon

    In this episode, I spoke with Isabelle Kenyon, Founder & CEO at Calibrate, a
    metabolic health company on a mission to change the way the world treats weight.
    Since 2020, they have helped over 20,000 Americans improve metabolic health,
    showing results with members having averaged 15% sustained weight loss,
    surpassing the best outcomes from peer-reviewed clinical trials.

    and how commercialised the academic literature to a sustainable business,
    having raised more than $125m to date


    * She answers the question around do you need to be a healthcare professional
    to start and grow a health company, as Isabelle doesn't come from that
    background herself


    * How she tested the idea and the considerations you need to take when testing

    MVP you can have here

    #86: Growing a Strong Travel Community During the Pandemic – Erika De Santi

    #86: Growing a Strong Travel Community During the Pandemic – Erika De Santi

    In this episode I spoke to Erika De Santi, co-founder of WeRoad, a travel
    company that plans adventure tours around the world focusing on young
    travellers.
    They have coordinated over 30,000 European travellers and have been extremely
    successful with growing during the pandemic where travel was hit hardest.
    We covered:
    * How Erika came up with the unique business model of WeRoad that takes an
    alternative view of the adventure travel industry with a focus on the
    dynamics of the group
    * How WeRoad survived the pandemic through pivoting their business model
    temporarily and actually generated around £500k in revenue from gift cards
    alone, where 40% of these purchases were from people who had never travelled
    with them
    * How Erika has built and is continuing to build an incredible community where
    most of their sales are generated from word of mouth

    #85: Raising £500k Investment by Paying Celebrities to Make Personalised Cameo Videos – Zac Williams

    #85: Raising £500k Investment by Paying Celebrities to Make Personalised Cameo Videos – Zac Williams

    In this episode I spoke with Zac Williams, the CEO of Careerpass Network, a
    careers marketplace platform.
    What's extremely interesting about Zac's story is that he raised over £500,000
    investment for his startup through paying celebrities to read out personalised
    messages to potential investors through Cameo.
    We cover:
    * How Zac spent £3.5k on Cameo to make personalised videos for potential
    investors which turned into over £500,000 in investment he received so far
    * How using these personalised celebrity videos lead to an 85% response rate
    for cold emails to investors when average response rate is probably around 5%
    if you're lucky
    * His step by step process before using Cameo and after to use this strategy
    for your own businesses when deciding to raise money
