Hatch Founders Talk

Dec 7 2020 • 40 mins

In this episode we sat down with Tanisha from BAIOU and Dior Bediako from The Junior Network to discuss their moves into becoming their own bosses. Tanisha recently participated on our Female Founders Launchpad to help her grow her lifestyle brand BAIOU -the UK’s first snappable, sustainable sun-protective swimwear brand for girls, with easy to use snap-button closures at crotch. A business she started as she wanted to create her own opportunities and inspire other mothers to do the same.

Dior Bediako is the founder of two initiatives centred on providing career support to young fashion hopefuls. Having started her career in PR at Burberry, Dior was frustrated by how little help there was for newbies in fashion; leading her to first create ‘Pepper Your Talk’ for students and graduates, and then went on to launch ‘The Junior Network’ for entry-level fashion professionals.

In this episode they discuss their initial steps to starting their businesses, the importance of having a mentor or a role model, and their advice to others wanting to start a business

Come and join in to get some inspiration on thinking big, growing your business and how to fight challenges on the way from those who have been there.
