Susan Port entered the company she set up three years ago, into the Small Business of The Year category, and is now in with a chance to make it to the awards shortlist and scoop the final prize!
Babynobumps sells protective hats, designed to protect babies from serious bumps to the head while they are learning to sit up, crawl and walk. The business was born in 2006 and since that date the company has been selling brightly coloured and patterned safety hats to concerned parents nationwide via its website and telephone orders. Mothercare has even expressed an interest in distributing the hats, which would massively increase sales.
Susan comments; “I’m immensely proud of Babynobumps. I have managed to bring a product to the UK , which will improve child safety.
“With research showing that over half a million children a year go to hospital as a result of an accident – especially now that many homes have wooden floors and paved patios – this product addresses the potential of an accident.
“Three years on, the business is now performing exceptionally well, and with more and more parents looking for ways to protect their children from serious harm, I can only see the business growing.”
Susan continues; “My intention is to make Babynobumps a brand name that is not only widely recognisable, but also the first choice for new parents.”
