This week's episode of Bloom by Blue Cactus is with Tom Meades, Founder of @gomidesign.

Gomi is a sustainable design studio in Brighton, England, that turns non-recyclable plastic waste into tech products. They started out in 2018, transforming unwanted plastic bags and wraps into colourful, marbled Bluetooth speakers.

Tune in to hear:

๐ŸŒต How the idea for Gomi came about

๐ŸŒต Why they chose crowdfunding as the source of their start-up funding

๐ŸŒต Why a failed fundraising campaign isn't necessarily the end of the road

๐ŸŒต The pros and cons of going down the crowdfunding investment route

๐ŸŒต Tips for creating a crowdfunding campaign and how to ask for help

๐ŸŒต The product launches and brand collaborations in the pipeline for the year ahead.

We loved our chat with Tom and can't wait to hear what other innovative ideas he has up his sleeve.
