“I was in a mess of red tape trying to start up my business from my front room. I knew I had a great idea and that it could really work, but I needed that bit of experience and guidance in the early days to get me over the regulatory barriers, and to raise funds. Example & Co were brilliant – and I still count Gerard as a friend as well as a business adviser now that my company is thriving and employs several dozen staff.”
