About this event

New year, new fireside chat... this time with Tiny Box Company's founder and managing director Rachel Watkyn. Join us to hear how the multi-award winning, eco-entrepreneur set up her company in a bedroom 14 years ago and how her perseverance to ensure the company’s survival through the pandemic became her latest venture.

In September 2008, the company’s appearance on Dragons Den aired where Peter Jones and Theo Paphitis each offered an investment of £60k for 40%. Now, Tiny Box Company employs over 90 staff and turns over circa £10m. 

Rachel is an advocate for female led small businesses and runs free business clinics on a Thursday for any small business owners who want advice, or often just want to chat through hurdles they are experiencing and gain some confidence.
