Win tickets to the next chapter of innocent inspires and hear how to become your own boss

This July innocent is hosting a seminar with a difference.

The third chapter in our innocent Inspires series is all about entrepreneurialism.

Richard Reed, co-founder of innocent, will be joined by some of our brightest and best entrepreneurs, including Bec Astley Clarke (founder of Astley Clarke), Eben Upton (co-founder of Raspberry Pi), Jeremy Gilley (founder of Peace One Day), Holly Tucker & Sophie Cornish (co-founders of not on the high and Martin Morales (founder of Ceviche).

Together they will be sharing their stories, tips, successes and failures as they explain how to turn an idea into a business and love the journey it takes you on.

Back in the day (when Richard was still a young, spritely entrepreneur), he and innocent co-founders Jon and Adam wanted to create something that would make life a little bit better and a little bit easier. From this idea innocent smoothies were born.

If you’d like to be in with the chance of winning a pair of tickets to innocent Inspires, just tell us, in no more than 50 words, what you’d make to help life become a little bit better and a little bit easier. It could be a new product, a new business idea or just a new way of thinking. We’ll get Richard to choose his favourites and will email the winners by Friday 19th July.


Our entrepreneurial evening has been and gone, but you can take a look at how it went here:

win tickets to our next innocent inspires event

Our second innocent inspires evening, 'leaving things better than you find them', with special guests Laura Bailey, Arthur Potts-Dawson, Guerrilla Gardeners and Good For Nothing takes place on the 19th June 2013 in Paradise Park, London. You'll step inside the innocent yurt, where we'll bring the outdoors indoors and share some of the things we can all do to make a positive difference to the world. 

To win a pair of tickets, tell us the one thing you've done to leave the world a little better (in no more than 240 characters).

Our very own sustainability Lou will pick the five entries that impress her the most and we'll email each winner by the 14th June 2013. Please don't think you need to demonstrate that you've saved half of the rainforest by the way - every day efforts to tread a little more lightly can be just as impressive as grand sustainability projects.

Good luck.
