"Pitching in the Female Start-Up of the Year 2020 finals - less than a year after launching my breakfast delivery business, Oatsu - has to be my proudest moment of 2020!
I was delighted to have been shortlisted as a semi-finalist, and overjoyed to learn I'd reached the final three businesses, out of hundreds of applicants.
During the finals, I loved sharing my journey from finance professional to food business owner with the judges, and was incredibly inspired by fellow finalists Jess and Dominique's stories.
Becoming a Female Start-Up of the Year finalist has given me a great boost in confidence, and has made me even more determined to continue growing my breakfast business!"
Lauren O'Donnell, founder at Oatsu and 2020 finalist
