Stamptastic, the alternative to school uniform labels using a personalised stamp, recently attended an event for winners of Small Business Sunday (#SBS), a Twitter initiative supporting small business launched by Dragons’ Den’s Theo Paphitis.
At the event, Stamptastic was able to network with fellow #SBS winners and pitch its product to two leading high-street retailers. A question and answer session with Judy Naake (sold the distribution rights to St Tropez in 2006 for £70m), Rob Forkan (owner of Gandys flip flops) and Julian Callede (CEO of made.com) also featured. Stamptastic sought the panel’s advice on diversifying and increasing its product range.
“The #SBS event was extremely motivational and we received great advice and tips from other business owners,” says Stamptastic co-owner, Francesca Gubbay. “We are now inspired to take our company to the next level.”
