What's the Story?
Who are we you ask? It’s a good question, after all, if we’re not credible as founders, why should you believe in our platform.
Why My New Venture?
My New Venture is a labour of love, brought alive by three founders and a team of talented people that share our passion. We’ve all been where you are, whether that be thinking about starting, already running, or looking to give your venture a renewed kick. Are we doing this for the money? Well, it would be nice to make a few quid for sure. The real reason is that we’ve each had business failures that have affected us in profound ways.
We want to give small business owners and sole traders the information they’ll need to make the chance of success as high as it can possibly be.
“To empower individuals to make confident decisions and design their own future”.
“Success for everyone who starts a business”.

Meet Phillipa from My New Venture, founder of an international health brand and owner of a busy digital marketing agency.

My New Venture is her way of passing on that inspiration to others.
