Can you help Dr Zig to blow bubbles all around the country?
A GIANT bubble entrepreneur has launched a crowd funding appeal to fund the continuing expansion of the firm.
Paola Dyboski-Bryant launched Dr Zigs from her home in Betws-yCoed and now has a manufacturing site at Bangor - employing 10 permanent staff and 20 casual workers.
Now the entrepreneur has launched a £5,000 crowd funding bid on www.indiegogo.com - with more than £1,000 already collected.
The money will pay for a revamp of their packaging and help with the continued expansion of the company.
It follows the latest boost for the company after they took the small business award at the Conwy Business Awards.
She has also recently won a high profile contract to attend the Kendal Calling pop festival in the Lake District where The Kaiser Chiefs will be starring with Elbow and the Vaccines.
She’s confident she can put them in the Dr Zig’s giant bubbles.
On the crowd-funding, Paola said: “Our current packaging is still pretty much what I created back at our kitchen table using MS Publisher and clip art.
“It’s no longer fit for what is a really cool and wonderful product – and certainly no good for helping us to #sharethebubblelove.
“We have a lot more people to make happy, but in order to be stocked in shops, and to be considered by distributors, we need packaging that is not only good for the environment.”
Conwy County Borough Council’s Business and Enterprise skills development coordinator, Anna Openshaw, says the annual business awards are going from strength to strength. She said: “Business such as Dr Zigs, which were formed in the region and are having a hugely positive impact on the North Wales economy and it is only right that we celebrate their success.”
