Curated online marketplace, showcasing extraordinary Northern brands and businesses.
Launching in February 2017, That’s Champion Pet is a Venture Stream Venture. Born from the desire to put everything uniquely wonderful about the North in one place and help local businesses thrive online. This curated marketplace showcases extraordinary brands from fashion and dog beer to stunning illustrations and beauty products.
As Venture Director I was able to play an instrumental role in taking the venture forward by creating a brand identity, full design and website development, curating products which included working with leading regional suppliers one-on-one as well as crafting a yearly/monthly marketing plans.
I continue to operate the day-to-day tasks of running the business including: order fulfilment, customer and supplier relations, business invoicing and site management.
I’m incredibly passionate about this marketplace and believe in creating new and continued growth for the North.
I’m delighted to become part of That’s Champion Pet. I’m massively passionate about the North.
