When did you start your business?
What's been your biggest highlight?
Our Kickstarter success in August 2020 when we raised over £21k of pre-orders in less then 30 days.
What's been your biggest challenge?
Hitting expectations - I always set big targets and milestones for BeoBia so hitting them can be a real challenge, but working towards these big, hairy, audacious goals (BHAG) are half of the fun working in an early stage start-up.
