  3. I was on a plane returning to Cornwall from Gatwick and I started talking to the person next to me who turned out to be my business partner Alan. We recognised we had very different skillsets and so we kept in touch to see if there might be something we could work together on. A few months later, my lightbulb moment was realising together we could deliver one of the things I’d been pushing for in my clinical role and that was a digital pre-op assessment. We had wanted to get away from a paper-based system but that hadn’t been delivered. Now was the chance to put to use my clinical expertise around pre-op assessment alongside Alan’s design skills in terms of getting a user interface that patients could use. The result is MyPreOp which offers patient-focussed solutions, getting patients to tell their story and in doing so it helps clinical teams gather the information they need and offering a return on investment of £4 for every £1 spent.

  4. Back in December 2015 I was running a pub but I had ambitions to have my own business and to carve out a work-life balance where I could spend weekends with my family and young children. The iBounce story started if not on the back of a pub coaster, not far off. A weekend away with my friend and now business partner, experiencing a trampoline park in action, a few Long Island Iced Teas and a long old night round a cocktail bar and we realised our opportunity. The numbers just worked. We thought, “there isn’t one in Cornwall, there isn’t one in Devon. We’ve got 12p and a lot of drive. How do we get one open? And what does a trampoline park look like?”

  5. I had a business idea, a passion and desire to see it come to life, but I had no experience of how to do that. This lack of experience led me to the Breakthrough for start-ups programme from Oxford Innovation and Unlocking Potential. When I walked into the room at the Breakthrough workshop I snuck in quietly, I kept myself to myself. But then I met my Business Development Manager Lucy Cox and she encouraged me over the course of the two days to speak up, find my voice, and be confident in what I had to say. She prodded and poked where necessary and I am so glad she did as I have not stopped shouting about my business since! There is still plenty of work to be done but I honestly believe without the help of Breakthrough I would still be just talking about my ‘idea’ instead of promoting my business to potential investors and supporters.
