How Forward Partners Helped
In the first 3 months...
Within the first two weeks we ran a design sprint, built a prototype and got meaningful feedback from a numer of potential users. Our team then worked with Tamara to build a fully functioning ecommerce store with a lean brand in a month. Within 2 months LiveBetterWith were taking orders and had happy customers.
After 6 months...
Once we had proven that there was a real need being solved, we worked together to build a stronger brand and relaunched LiveBetterWith on a scalable, customisable and powerful ecommerce platform. Alongside product development, our Head of growth worked with LiveBetterWith to start running weekly growth experiments. This led to the company growing consistently 30% every month.
After 12 months...
With a string product and meaningful traction, Tamara was able to hire in a great early team including a strong COO and Lead developer with the help of our Head of Talent.
Our Head of PR helped LiveBetterWith receive press articles in major newspapers that opened up partnerships with big Cancer charities to boost their credibility.
Our investment helped Tamara connect to the right follow on investors and with preparing her pitch.
What happened next?
Tamara and LiveBetterWith went on to raise £1.6 million within a year. They have they own offices in Kings Cross, 10+ employees and are still growing like crazy.
"Unless you've done it multiple time before, as a founder you don't know what you don't know. Working with Forward Partners helped me get off the ground quickly and avoid the common pitfalls."
