04: Parent Tech with Peanut and #TechMums
In this episode of the VOOM Podcast Nikki Bedi is joined by two entrepreneurs who’ve used personal experiences as catalysts for their businesses.
Michelle Kennedy (formerly from the dating app Bumble) explains how a period of loneliness after the birth of her first child inspired her to create an app for mums called Peanut - helping mums chat, meet and solve problems together.
She is joined by Doctor Sue Black, an entrepreneur whose life-changing journey in computer science became a springboard for her to enable others through the social enterprise #TechMums.
Plus we’ve got a special guide to investment from VOOM competition partners Grant Thornton, as Sarah Abrahams (Head of Growth Finance) debunks some of the common myths and mistakes companies make whilst raising capital.
