O2 Smarta 100 FREE event returns to London to help you grow your startup globally

You'll discover how chocolatier Amelia Rope, a colour changing umbrella company and a recently-awarded MBE created companies that have thousands of customers buying their products both at home and overseas. 


Find out if your business or idea has the potential to sell worldwide by hearing from a panel of entrepreneurs and experts who have been there and done it when it comes to taking their business overseas. They will talk about how to build a brand that has the power to create buying customers abroad, and how to use your 'Britishness' to build fans and customers.

Hosted by our very own Shaa Wasmund, this event is your chance to get in the room to hear from her, and the panel for free. She'll be finding out the steps that these entrepreneurs followed in order to have massive sales successes abroad.

If we haven’t persuaded you already, here’s more information about the exciting panel…

Amelia Rope, founder of Amelia Rope Chocolate

Amelia Rope and her luxury flavoured chocolate bars has seen her, at one stage, move house 15 times in the same amount of months. But the aromatherapist's determination to run her own business has paid off and her products can now be found on the shelves of the likes of Fortnum & Mason’s and Selfridges. She has been covered by nearly every national media outlet you could name and her brand can be found abroad at places like Madrid and Malaysia.

Emma-Jayne Parkes, co-founder of SquidLondon

Emma-Jayne and Viviane Jaeger co-founded SquidLondon in June 2008 at the end of their final year at the renowned London College of Fashion. SquidLondon produces a unique range of products that change colour when wet! Their trade signature is white on black and as the product gets wet, the white design erupts into a visual effect of bright strong colour, delivering the real WOW factor. Over the last five years, they have grown to be an international brand stocked in over 18 countries. 

Jessica Huie MBE, founder of ColorBlind Cards

Jessica has had no easy journey to success after leaving school at 17 and not knowing where life would lead her. But using her entrepreneurial spark and having an eye for a gap in a competitive market, she founded ColorBlind Cards in 2007. Giving up a career in public relations, Jessica founded her brand after growing frustrated with a lack of greeting cards that celebrated race and ethnicity. Jessica will pass on her valuable advice and discuss her experience in building a global brand.
