Pavegen are a company who have come up with revolutionary technology that transforms the power of people's footsteps into energy. Linda Lewis meets the CEO Laurence Kemball Cook, who reveals how the company has teamed up with Tribal Planet in Silicon Valley to turn the data from footsteps into a 'digital currency' which people can spend using their mobile phone.
Linda Lewis visits the people behind Cauli Rice an innovative range of low carb, low calory rice made from cauliflower which available in supermarkets. About a year ago Gem Misa was one of the finalists slightly nervously lined up to pitch their business idea to Richard Branson in the annual Virgin competition for start-ups and new businesses. An advertising campaign was part of their prize, Cauli Rice got a lot of media attention. And not long afterwards their innovative range of low carb, low calorie rice made from cauliflower was launched in supermarkets and online.
Since then, co-founders Gem Misa and her husband Jamie have raised more investment, won more prizes and are already planning various new flavours and business extras, such as a subscription service for people watching their weight who want their low carbs delivered straight to the door in a regular order. With sales soaring, they've also opened an office in Battersea, South London.
