Lets take a look at Build the Startup Challenge team Nisbett & George:
What is N&G?
N&G create a commercial platform for creative graduate designers to sell & promote their products.
N&G provide an in depth service for creative graduates helping them to run their brand through the N&G membership.
Their work is sold through our online boutique where they also have a portfolio page to promote their brand. This is supported through actively promoting their brand to press/ publications and finding them external stockists i.e, independent boutiques or department stores; events such as fashion shows, exhibitions & pop-up shops also help to showcase graduates work.
N&G is the only platform for creative graduates, which also gives graduates business acumen & support, not normally provided whilst at University.
This service is tailored to each graduate and their brand.
"We provide unique products and one-off pieces to customers who like to support fresh new creative talent and like to be different. Great customer service plus a bespoke service where customers can commission one-off and/or made to measure pieces has been a great success."
What do you want to get out of the challenge?
At N&G we love to take on new challenges & soak up knowledge like sponges however as we are at a fundamental stage of business, more graduates becoming members, our main milestone would be balancing this with the competition. However we are determined to succeed in the competition & will overcome this milestone.
Why should you win?
We are very passionate about helping creative graduate designers to build successful brands. We work hard achieving our goals & see the long-term potential of our business. With the amount of graduates increasing year by year along with the number of “young people” who start-up their business straight from University, we believe we have what it takes to drive a successful business, making N&G a well known global design brand that supports new talent.
