Dr Kyle Grant and Tom de Wilton, Co-founders

"Founders Factory's accelerator turned out to be a real leg-up for our business. We received mentorship from some of the best minds at Reckitt Benckiser (RB), and we're soon to launch a game-changing partnership with one of their household brands.

Not to mention how Founders Factory equipped us with the skills and know-how to scale our business into two new cities and hire our first team. "
