The Independent profiles Ruth Amos during Global Entrepreneurship Week

The Independent profiled 10 successful young British entrepreneurs, including one of our brilliant inspirational speakers Ruth Amos, age 22 who designed the StairSteady as part of a GCSE design project and has subsequently set up her business to launch the product to enable people with limited mobility to use the stairs confidently.  Ruth told The Independent:

“Being a young entrepreneur can be a challenge – my view is that you can start a business at any age but the important thing is to identify a need for your product and be passionate about achieving your goals. Age can be your biggest weakness but also your biggest strength. I now run StairSteady Ltd full time and use my experience to help other young, aspirant entrepreneurs by giving talks in schools and colleges. The most important piece of advice is to ask questions. Don’t be afraid, as it is the only way to improve and grow, and everyone has been inexperienced at one stage. Take on board other people’s opinions, learn from them but make sure you make the final decision for yourself – you have to believe in every decision you make. The most important part of entrepreneurship is passion so, above all else, enjoy it.”
