Natural skin-care company Earth to Earth Organics have won the 2018 Harrow Business Den competition.
They won a package of business support and cash prize in the business investment pitch style competition. Danny and Tenesia Pascal, owners of Earth to Earth Organics, impressed the panel of judges with their cool and collected pitch.
Speaking about their win, Danny said: “Winning the Harrow Business Den competition has left us feeling overwhelmed, full of joy and very humbled. Having never run a business before, Tenesia and I are really looking forward to the experience and knowledge the mentoring will bring so that we have the tools to survive for the long run.”
The business started in 2015 when they started to experiment with all natural products, and when Danny’s nephew couldn’t find a cream to help with his eczema, their handmade blend very quickly became a winner, helping to clear up his skin. From that moment, they decided to start taking skin-care products more seriously and developed the idea as a potential business over the last two years.
Leader of Harrow Council, Cllr Sachin Shah who opened the event said: “Our worthy winners – Earth to Earth Organics – embody everything that Harrow people are all about. They’re two ordinary people with a dream and the courage to pursue it. They’re working hard to turn their inspiration into success – and Harrow Council’s place is right there, supporting them to reach their goals.”
The runner-up was The Dandies Clothing, an organic and eco-friendly fashion brand. The other two finalists were Tudor Lodge Consultants a digital marketing consultancy specialising in Search Engine Optimisation and Aspiring Panda, an Employee Attendance App using facial recognition and GPS.
