In Detail

Richard began on the road to business success washing windows at the age of 8. He also had a summer job picking up dog biscuits in a pet factory. It was at Cambridge University he first met his future business partners. After a stint in the advertising world he began selling his health drinks at music events. The brand caught the ethical mood of the late 90's for healthier life-styles. Following investment from an American source the brand grew rapidly with take up by McDonalds and distribution in major retailers. The smoothie drinks brand was sold to Coca Cola in 2013 for $500m.


Whilst the innocent success case study is at the heart of Richard's story his work with JamJar has taken him in a new direction. He now works with start-ups as an investor and advisor to a host of new businesses. This makes him a great choice for organisations seeking to instil an entrepreneurial culture to unlock innovation and achieve commercial advantage.
