The Start-up Spotlight series is made up of informal lunchtime talks to enable individuals to hear about starting a business from the entrepreneur's perspective.
We invite you to join the first Start-up Spotlight of the year!
The next guest for Masood Entrepreneurship Centre’s Start-up Spotlight series is University of Manchester alumna Eve Kekeh, Founder of the UK’s first baby-clothing rental service, Bundlee. Eve completed a Masters of Enterprise degree at Alliance Manchester Business School and it was during this time that Bundlee was born.
As the eldest sister in her family, Eve spotted the problem that many new parents face: babies grow, but their clothes do not. Babies outgrow 7 clothing sizes in their first 2 years! Eve was determined to find a solution to this problem, as so many clothes were wasted. Using circular economy principles, she set-up Bundlee in 2018. Bundlee has since saved 1000’s of garments from landfill and over 9,000kg of carbon. Bundlee has featured in The Guardian, The Daily Mail, and Vogue. This year – deservingly - Eve was honoured as one of Forbes 30 Under 30 Social Entrepreneurs in Europe.
Grab a brew and tune in as Eve will take you through her start-up journey, and discuss how she continues to make her environmentally-conscious business model a successful one.
