Hildenborough mum talks business with Dragon, Theo Paphitis
Katie Malkinson, owner of kid’s sports retailer, LittleBigSports.co.uk, was privileged to attend Theo Paphitis’ Small Business Sunday Winners (#SBS) event in Birmingham last week (Friday 30th March), after winning his weekly twitter competition.
Katie launched Little Big Sports in 2010 when she identified a gap in the market for a retailer specialising in sports equipment and clothing for kids. The website was chosen by Dragon’s Den star, Theo Paphitis as winner of his weekly “Small Business Sunday” twitter competition in May 2011 and the accolade has dramatically increased website traffic and sales.
Founder and owner of Little Big Sports, Katie, said: “Winning SBS has made the world of difference to Little Big Sports so I was delighted to be given the chance to meet Theo and fellow winners. Theo spent hours inspiring us and sharing his experiences to help move our businesses forward. For someone who is so busy, Theo is genuinely committed to helping small businesses grow. Not only has he promoted my business he has created a platform for us all through theopaphitissbs.com and a support network which will be invaluable”.
Little Big Sports offers the best sports equipment for kids across a wide range of sports including cricket, football, tennis, golf, rugby, cycling and much more.
