It is less than a year ago that I launched ORTIR Apothecari - a niche perfume house right here in the very West of Wales.
So I am absolutely thrilled to be a FINALIST in the StartUp Awards 2023 for Fashion and Beauty.
It is a real honour and daunting though it was, this whole process was a fantastic opportunity for me to sit back from my day-to-day and really assess how far I had come in a few short months.
They asked me what it was that inspired me to start ORTIR Apothecari, my motivations as a founder of a niche perfume house as well as the journey and adventures I have had so far.
The ups, downs, challenges and highs.
To get this far in the competition I had to answer lots of questions about the business side of ORTIR Apothecari:
- What I wish I'd known before starting the business.
- What are my ambitious plans for the future?
- Who my supportive community is
- What makes my business so special?
- What makes it stand out from the crowd?
I am so very grateful for this recognition as well as for all the support that has gotten me here.
I am truly excited for the future.
