Naomi Jane FRSA, Founder & Director of A Life Less Ordinary Wanted recently won first place at the live pitch at Start Up Brixton. This is the first time that Naomi has pitched the business for funding since launching in 2014.
A Life Less Ordinary Wanted is a Positive Change Agency and a for-profit social enterprise based at Impact Hub Brixton. Their mission is to empower leaders and their organisations to make positive lasting changes to their lives, teams and communities.
They support individuals through coaching, therapy and personal development events & webinars; and service corporates through leadership & team development training, executive coaching and cultural change support. Profits fund social impact projects and subsidise their support services for charities and local communities. Naomi said:
“Winning the StartUp Brixton pitch means so much to me and the team! Now A Life Less Ordinary Wanted will be able to support even more people to make positive, lasting changes in their lives and organisations.
“The prize money is going towards webinar tech costs for our first ever online personal leadership programme which means we will be able to offer more bursaries to people who otherwise wouldn’t be able to benefit.”
StartUp Brixton on Saturday 28th May was London's largest ever startup event for mission-led start ups.
