HALTO - A journey to start-up success with crowdfunding
  • Lecture Theatre 1, Roland Levinsky Building

Save event

This guest lecture follows the entrepreneurial journey of Lerryn and Lucy, sisters and mums to little ones, who believe that all women should have the opportunity to feel great in fabulous, flattering swimwear.

In their own words, everyone knows that halter necks can do incredible things for your rack (whatever your size), but they have been the bane of our summers for all too long. Redness, blisters, bruising, headaches and neck aches; enough! With over 85% of bikinis on the market being halter necks, what’s a girl to do? Desperation (and the sight of a beautiful halter neck bikini, in our size and in the sale!) made us search, unsuccessfully, for a solution.

Halto is born from the hours of latte-fuelled, toddler-juggling, fun-packed, sleep-deprived years that has been their journey so far.

They successfully funded Halto's start-up via Crowdfunder thanks to their brilliant campaign videos (www.crowdfunder.co.uk/halto).

This free event is open to all University of Plymouth undergraduate/postgraduate students and staff as part of the BETA Enterprise skills development and student start-up support programme.
