Let's talk about the business of wellness…
My guest today is Anna Brightman, Co-Founder of circular beauty brand, UpCircle. In 2015, Anna and her Co-Founder (also her brother) Will, came up with the idea to repurpose cafe’s and restaurants used coffee grounds.
In this episode, Anna shares her insights into starting a purpose-led beauty brand that’s reliant on waste, how investors initially reacted to the idea, and why a Virgin Startup Loan helped the siblings get the business off the ground. We also talk about the reality behind pitching on Dragon’s Den and how to stand out in the competitive beauty landscape.
