Christmas Entrepreneurs

Throughout 2016, NatWest and Entrepreneurial Spark have been supporting hundreds of new and young businesses in their development. Here is round up of our ‘Christmas entrepreneurs’:

  • Stand4 Socks is a Manchester-based social enterprise which this year launched the ‘buy one, give one’ campaign. This initiative will see the company give a pair of thick, antibacterial socks directly to homeless people in the North West, with each pair of socks sold, and will support the UN’s Global Goals.
  • Foodinate is a business designed to create a sustainable impact on food poverty in the UK. By booking a table at a participating restaurant and ordering a meal, a meal will also be provided for a local homeless shelter.
  • Not Before Tea is a British children’s lifestyle brand. Their products include the Adventures of Sherb and Pip, a children’s story written by young author,  Henry Patterson, when he was 10 years old.
  • Envytations is a website for designing the perfect invitations for every occasion, and organising guest lists.
