£98,000 for a big yellow bear

You might remember that last year our co-founder Rich (on the left in dashing pink-purple trousers) led a BBC3 series called Be Your Own Boss, in which he tried to uncover and support a new wave of British entrepreneurs. 

At the very start of the series he gave 500 budding entrepreneurs £100 each (of his own money) and challenged them to come back a week later with a profit. They did, turning Rich's initial £ 50,000 investment into £98,000. 

Rich, along with Adam and Jon (his fellow co-founders) decided to donate the money to BBC Children In Need, which earnt us a visit from Pudsey Bear himself. We asked the boys to hold their cheques up nice and clearly but it turns out that being around a 7' giant yellow bear makes following simple instructions impossible. 

Our thanks go out to all of those people involved in raising the money, and to BBC Children in Need for doing such amazing work.
