Dionne Jarvis and Pete Perrin – Boys to Men Clothing
‘Andrew Deeley from Innov8 on Sheppey has helped us a lot in getting our business ready to start. He gave us lots of advice in the early days about what we would need to do to start our business , he also helped get us on the right path with the job centre who placed us on the NEA program and helped us get our business plan ready for the NEA mentor to sign us off as a viable new enterprise, and allowed us to commence with the program to get financial help to start our new company.
We saw a big gap in the men’s and boys clothing market here on the Island and so wanted to set up an online store to provide people with more choice, especially in the age range of 8-adult because the choice available in the shops on the Island is very limited. We are aiming to have our business up and running within the next couple of months.’
