Founded by two experienced business women who enjoy helping businesses flourish
Marketing Startups was born on the 26th October 2018 in the Fruitworks coffee shop over a lovely flat white and some vegan cake.
It started with a throwaway comment in a meeting. "What happens to your clients when you've given above and beyond with website content, and you release your client out into the world?" Nurturing small businesses after you've finished the project takes up a lot of free and spare time.
Tabitha's second meeting of the day was with Heather Scott, who already ran a CIC. The throwaway comment had stuck in her mind and plans developed rather quickly over a coffee and another slice of cake. Within 4 hours there was a name, domain and CIC paperwork sorted out. Marketing Startups was evolving, and the development of the Move Forward programme was underway, proving that we know our stuff.
The paperwork for the CIC was back in record time and Heather, having already demonstrated her passion and commitment for supporting small businesses via Kitchen Table Creative CIC was the 1st choice to come on board and be a Co-Director.
At the same cake and coffee meeting, further ideas took form and Heather went off to speak with Jonathan of Fairly Marvellous, a couple of weeks later and Web Site in a Day was born, we obviously some more coffee, scones and flapjacks to get the paperwork together for that one!
