Unsung Heroes: New Documentary Series Highlights UK’s Most Ground-Breaking Businesses Changing the World

New series shines a spotlight on 25 of the UK’s most innovative entrepreneurs and their ground-breaking businesses that are revolutionizing the way we live.

 

An entrepreneur who invented 3D printed personalized gummy vitamins tailored to people’s nutritional needs, lifestyles and goals is just one of the highlights of a new documentary featuring weird and wonderful ideas that will change the world.

The four-part series, “Founders Changing the World'' launched September 3rd 2021, London.  It showcases the trials and tribulations of setting up such innovative businesses and gives viewers the inside story on what makes these remarkable people tick.

Meanwhile, Tess Cosad, founder of Béa Fertility, is determined her at-home, clinical-standard fertility treatment will revolutionize the way women access fertility care.

Taking a stance, Danny Gray, founder of War Paint for Men, wants to mainstream men's make-up and overhaul the stigma attached to make-up for men.

All 25 founders who feature in the documentary series are members of The Founding Network, a community of leading entrepreneurs who come together to scale their businesses.

The show explores the mindsets, ambitions, realities and successes of these business leaders across four sectors, including healthcare, on-demand, entertainment, and transportation.

James Sutcliffe, Founder and CEO of The Founding Network, who hosts the show, said:

”This series has come about by having personal conversations with many founders in our community and seeing first-hand the unsung heroes of innovation that are out there.

 

We wanted to support entrepreneurs who are transforming the world by giving them a platform so they can reach their full potential, share their ambitions and realities to a global audience, as well as inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs.”

The series brings the founders’ stories to life through facility tours, in-depth interviews and industry experts’ opinions and views.
