"We're not getting any younger. So you may as well get cracking. That's my main advice: get cracking, get selling, get making and get spending."
On today's show I chat to Anglo-Italian entrepreneur and Pasta Evangelists founder Alessandro Savelli.
Pasta Evangelists are trying to do for fresh pasta delivery what fever tree did for tonic. They deliver artisinal restaurant-quality pasta to your front door whilst you work and they'll even deliver it through your letterbox. They're backed by some of the biggest names in British food including Great British Bakoff star Prue Leith CBE, Sunday Times food critic Giles Coren and Masterchef critic William Sitwell.
They're now one of the fastest-growing food startups in the UK, two years into their journey. They recently appeared on Dragon's Den and whilst they didnlt walk away with the investment they were looking for, it was a great marketing experience for them. Their appearance led to a spike in website visitors, doubling their orders.
I chat to Alessandro and find out how they're doing.
