Hello Bezlo has had a super exciting journey, from founder Clodagh’s very first idea for the brand to now as we are nearing the capsule collection release.
Clodagh made a company instagram account in 2015 and soon connected with like minded parents all across the world who validated her idea that girls could benefit from a STEM inspired clothing line. Clodagh was then selected to join a London based tech accelerator, Oxygen Accelerator, which served as an amazing crash course, teaching her the importance of product market fit and how to develop a lean business model. This really pushed Hello Bezlo towards its goals! Clodagh then became very involved in the London and Dublin startup community and was encouraged to launch a Kickstarter campaign before Christmas 2015, which raised much needed funds to further the brand.
The start of 2016 was very exciting, with Clodagh winning the Irish NASA hackathon and also winning first place at Startup Weekend. Clodagh was selected for a Google sponsored pre-accelerator course, StartupNext, which perfected Hello Bezlo’s pitch for investors and provided helpful feedback. All this time the Hello Bezlo network was growing, with the brand’s passionate ethos attracting a board of experienced advisors, including experts in the fashion, ecommerce and tech industry.
Hello Bezlo recently secured its first round of investment from Angel investors who saw the huge potential to help grow the brand to become internationally recognised. We are now perfecting our first collection, which will be ethically manufactured.
Thank you to everyone who has supported us so far!
