A Ruislip based entrepreneur has been named as one of the UK’s most 100 inspirational female entrepreneurs by Small Business Britain’s f:Entreprenur #ialso100 campaign.
Eleanor Wanless founder of Mindful Roots Tea has been honoured as part of the campaign which recognised the achievements of women throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
Since founding the company in 2018, Eleanor has worked to hand blend her own teas which stayed true to wellness benefits of the plants and roots but made them more fun by creating versatile natural blends which taste great.
After finding out about her name being listed in #ialso100, Eleanor said she hopes this will encourage other women to start their own businesses.
She said: “I have been named as one of the UK’s most inspirational female entrepreneurs as part of this campaign. I was in awe when I was accepted.
“After winning two Great Taste Awards last year, this is a great start to another uncertain year.
“I hope that I will inspire more women, particularly mixed race, to start their own businesses. It may appear like a daunting task but it is worth it to do what you love.”
Michelle Ovens, founder of f:Entrepreneur and Small Businesses Britain congratulated all of women that were honoured.
She said: “Despite the significant obstacles thrown at them in the last year, female entrepreneurship continues to grow and flourish.
“We need to continue, and increase, our support for these incredible women and celebrate their amazing strength and success in the face of huge challenges.”
