A quick hello
Founder and chief around here is Christina: She spent much of her career managing and growing FMCG brands at Nestle and Robinsons, then turned her hand to young start-up brands, and has never looked back since. She founded The Nurture Network purely to serve entrepreneurs and SMEs with practical marketing training and support, but has also co-founded two technology start-ups herself - so knows first hand what it is like to launch and grow a new business. Her first technology business launched in 2012 was acquired by Enterprise Nation in 2015, and today she spends much of her time focusing on the growth of her latest business, content marketing platform Openr. As well as this she teaches Entrepreneurial Marketing at UCL and is a mentor at Bathtub2Boardroom
