Virtual Vintage meets Theo Paphitis!
On Thursday 28th November 2013, we had the pleasure of being invited to Birmingham’s ICC by ex BBC’s Dragon’s Den judge and entrepreneur, Theo Paphitis, to celebrate our small business award.
Winners had to describe their business in one tweet via Twitter to Theo including the all-important hashtag #SBS. Winners were then retweeted by Theo and back in June 2012, we were one of the lucky winners!
Theo said the qualities he looks for when choosing potential winners is an up to the minute business idea and a good, well designed website.
This was a big event and we had a great time meeting fellow #sbs winners, eating gorgeous food and drink and being involved in an interesting Q&A session with Theo Paphitis who turned out to be very witty (with some very colourful language indeed!) and with a real passion for supporting and encouraging small businesses. After all, Theo is an entrepreneur himself, having worked in retail business since he was young and owning many High Street chains including lingerie brand Boux Avenue, Ryman Stationery and Robert Dyas.
At the end of a really inspiring day, we were lucky enough to meet the man himself and be presented with our certificate.
Fellow #sbs winners can get 10% off all stock on our website by logging into their accounts on Theo Paphitis’ website and searching for Virtual Vintage Clothing.
