Previous Enactus University: Nottingham

Current Role: Co-Founder

Organisation: Pouch

I joined Enactus Nottingham in my first year of University. I set up their commercial ventures team by putting on a student concert and running a student storage business. 

I also ran and international project in Cambodia, presented at 2 UK nationals and was Vice-President for a year. Enactus opened my eyes to entrepreneurship and I knew from my time there that I wanted to start my own business one day. 

After three years at EY where I qualified as a chartered accountant, I set up Pouch (www.joinpouch.com) with 2 friends. It's an e-commence business that build tools to save people time and money when shopping online. I would never have had the confidence to start out on my own if it wasn't for the experience and skills I learnt in Enactus.
