Sid keeps his business vision on track

    Congratulations to Sid Edwards who started his Ripseam company through ILF Venture programme back in 2013. 

    He showcased his company and his patent pending alternative to zip fasteners and spoke of his experience on 24 September at the Design Council's Spark awards at London's Somerset House.

    Of over 300 applicants to the prestigious support programme, Sid was chosen as one of 30 initial participants and then earned his place as one of the 10 finalists. 

    As part of his 'dragon's den' presentation ILF helped Sid film a focus group at Birmingham City University's Parkside Building last month.
