Making sustainable packaging the new normal

EnvoPAP joined Founders Factory to diversify their revenue streams by pivoting from selling stationery (paper and envelopes) to developing sustainable packaging materials for businesses across food, retail and beauty.

Through the Founders Factory network, Envopap were able to build direct relationships with global brands and sign enterprise contracts to create bespoke packaging at scale, including flower packaging with M&S and in-flight magazines with easyJet. With these under their belt, EnvoPAP were able to go to market as a global supplier of sustainable packaging across industries.

New Team Members

Opening new revenue streams and scalling the business meant that EnvoPAP were ready to grow their team, and we helped them hire the right people.

"Fast forward to the end of the programme and we had transformed from a no-frills, sustainable paper company to one that could potentially disrupt the entire print and packaging industry. FF equipped us with the perfect tools to engage with some of the biggest companies in the world. We got the chance to present our concept to decision-makers at M&S, L’Oreal and EasyJet among many others. Founders Factory is full of friendly experts that specialise in converting the potential energy of early-stage companies into kinetic success."

"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. "
