Meet some of the women entrepreneurs on Amazon UK

No primary category set

Amazon have spoken to a few of the women entrepreneurs on their platform to find out more about their businesses, the inspiration behind them and their growth journey so far.

According to Amazon’s most recent SME Impact Report,  around 40% of Amazon selling partners in the UK are businesses run by women entrepreneurs. If you’re a woman who is feeling motivated to start selling on Amazon then you’ll want to learn more about some of them already set up.

Lara Morgan, founder of Scentered

Lara is both a business owner and a business investor. She invests in women-owned businesses, like YogiBare who also sell on Amazon, and is the founder of her own brand, Scentered.

Selling on Amazon has allowed me to test my products in new markets and apply my learnings to scale my business. Amazon helped me propel Scentered to a global audience at a faster pace, and accounts for nearly half of my sales!

Joelle Hammond and Sarah McNena, co-founders of Drop Bear Beer

Joelle and Sarah have successfully won over investors with their story and products – raising over £2 million across three fundraising rounds to help them brew alcohol-free craft beers while committing to building a better world in which to drink it.

We always had a vision for Drop Bear Beer to be a sustainable brand, and we felt that Amazon’s sustainability goals really aligned with our own. That’s why we knew selling on Amazon was the right channel for us to grow our business.

Just two years on, they have achieved B-Corp certification and won over 20 awards for their beers. Looking to the future, they have big sustainability plans for their brewery and have joined Amazon Launchpad with a goal to service more of their European market.

Krutika Patel, founder of BeYou

Krutika is the founder behind female health and empowerment brand BeYou. Best known for its flagship period patches, the brand aims to use products as a way to encourage dialogue around taboo topics and issues for girls and women.

We have also established the BeYou Foundation which is a grass-roots project to ‘pay it back’. The BeYou Foundation provides free period pads to girls in rural India and employs 15 local women there to teach them how to make the pads so they can sell these locally and keep the profits.

Affi Parvizi Wayne, founder of Freda Health

Affi was inspired to set up Freda Health, an ‘eco-period and bladder brand’, after her own personal experience, both as a refugee and as a bladder cancer diagnosis survivor. 

I’ve always thought the menstrual needs of women are often overlooked, from every day public places to country border crossings and camps in Europe where women refugees are situated. This is why a portion of every Freda purchase is donated to initiatives across the world which tackle period poverty.
