“Fail to plan, plan to fail” with Chris Forbes

 

In this episode I was joined by Chris Forbes, Co-founder of The Cheeky Panda, a massively innovative company offering sustainable tissues made exclusively from bamboo!

 

Starting out in 2016, The Cheeky Panda have managed to gain a presence in 15+ countries, won various awards, and have been featured in numerous publications. They have been through a number of funding rounds, including Crowdfunding and offering equity, both of which surpassed their target, and eventually gave them a multi-million pound valuation!

 

It’s great to hear Chris talk about specific challenges of working in the product sector, so if you’re eyeing up the FMCG market then give this a listen!

 

 

In this episode we discuss:

 

  • Sustainable companies

  • Supply chain management

  • Running a successful crowdfunding campaign

  • Market testing

  • Product launches

  • Company valuation

  • Angel funding

  • Cashflow

  • Funding and bootstrapping

  • Working overseas and internationalisation

  • And as always, plenty more...
