Podcast: The Enterprise Nation member who's helping to save lives

Posted: Wed 31st Aug 2016

It's time for episode 16 of our podcast, the Small Business Sessions.

Enterprise Nation member and Neomi Bennett left school without any qualifications but once she'd had her family, decided to study nursing as a mature student. A study project led to her launching her own product, Neo-Slip, which now counts the NHS as one of its clients.

Neo-Slip is a little bag that goes over a patient's foot to help combat the difficulties with putting on anti-embolism stockings. With 25,00 people in the UK dying each year of deep vein thrombosis after they've had an operation, most of which could have been avoided, the product is much needed.

Neomi's intention was never to start her own business though so this session is a great example of how entrepreneurial ideas can come right out of nowhere.
