This week we're exploring the Manufacturing and Retail industries with CEO and Founder of The Cambridge Satchel Company, Julie Deane OBE. Julie graduated from Cambridge University in 1987 and took up work as a chartered accountant before setting up CSC in 2007. The company is now a handmade-in-Britain worldwide phenomenon employing more than 130 people and selling to over 100 countries. Deane is committed to preserving British manufacturing - a luxury rarely afforded by start-up businesses. We’ll be diving into Julie’s decision to start CSC, the perspective her children have given her and the tips she’d love to share for anyone looking to get started in retail and manufacturing.

Each week The Innovations Series dives into a different industry to ask our entrepreneurial leaders why they chose their sector and how they got there. Follow hopefully insightful and inspiring conversation, perfect for budding entrepreneurs and enterprising businesspeople looking to access an entrepreneurial world.
