Business Name: Majeurs Chesterfield
Support received: Start Up Loans for young entrepreneurs
26 year-old Demilola (Demi) Owoseje studied architecture at university and graduated in 2011. Having helped her mother run the family business unofficially from a young age, she knew she wanted to run her own business and had started a couple of ventures before finally finding the right business model inspired by her love for vintage furniture and design.
How did you start Majeurs Chesterfield?
Majeurs Chesterfield initially started as a side hobby, where my business partner and I sourced various pieces all around the country; many of the pieces which had fallen into disrepair/damage were then restored, before selling them on eBay.
