Born in our Venture Studio
How Nick and Marcus launched Bower Collective
Bower Collective joined the studio program to launch their hybrid eCommerce / subscription platform selling Earth’s best home and personal care products with an innovative reuse and refill program to eliminate plastic waste.
Through Founders Factory's support, Bower Collective were able to launch and scale the business quickly; closing a £400K round to continue momentum and unlocking unfair advantage with a partnership with Reckitt. The Bower Collective team received weekly support from the Head of Surface Care and leveraged expertise from their R&D teams, Washing Experts, Packaging Business Unit and the Head of Sustainability.
Here's who you could be working with at Reckitt

A unique opportunity to build a business from scratch
If you have an idea for a venture that is advancing the home and hygiene space, apply to join us.
You may be wondering…
Typically, a venture studio turns ideas that are sourced and vetted within the organisation, into venture-backable businesses - hiring a CEO and founding team when the time is right. At Founders Factory, we believe some of the best ideas come from entrepreneurs and real-life experiences, so we have two paths to founding a business with us:
We're looking for ambitious entrepreneurs who want to use technology to make a big impact. If you have an idea but haven't yet built the product or MVP, now's the right time.
If you don't have an existing idea, but are keen to become a founder, take a look at our careers page to run a concept we're already working on.
If you're a founder and you already have a product in market, take a look at our startup accelerator.
Each new venture will be supported by a studio team . Our skill sets include product, design, talent, data science, engineering and growth.
You will also receive capital to build your product, plus £150k to help you launch and a 6-month accelerator program.
Until the business is incorporated, we'll give you an employment contract with Founders Factory.
They don't. If a partnership forms with one of our corporate partners, it will be governed by the usual pilot or contract agreements between you and them all of which we can help with.
