Nimble has placed 2nd out of 10,000 businesses in the 2019 Natwest #Powerup Index.
The NatWest 2019 #PowerUp Index, is a list of the best and brightest among startups and entrepreneurs. Natwest identified 100 leading entrepreneurs participating in their accelerator programme between April 2018 and March 2019.
These 100 businesses reflect the key aspects of their accelerator programme, which focuses on the performance of these businesses as well as the main driver that makes them thrive – the entrepreneurs themselves.
Nimble are the makers of plant-based cleaning products which are tough on stains but safe for babies.
“I started in 2015 with a product named Milk Buster,” says Von, founder of Nimble Babies, who previously worked for Unilever. “But after a while, I realised that the business needed a wider range to thrive, so I set out to expand what we do.” Today, there are three products in a multitude of different sizes, and Von recently achieved a major business milestone.
“We’re stocked at Boots. That was a big, big win for me as it had been right there on the business plan for a long time. Going into the stores to see our products is just surreal.”
- Von Sy, Founder of Nimble
It’s an exciting time for Von – he’s currently steering his business through an important growth phase, with Sainsbury’s set to stock the brand from the end of this year. He has more products in the pipeline and is even basking in a little fame and glory thanks to an appearance on the BBC programme The Customer Is Always Right, in which his business scored the highest marks of the series.
