Business Name: Platinum Moments
Location: Canvey Island, Essex
Specialising in providing party equipment to hire for a wide variety of celebration events, Canvey Island-based start-up Platinum Moments Limited sought the support of Nwes to boost business.
Business support and advice from Nwes through the Essex Growth Programme, and a successful application for a Start Up Loan gave Platinum Moments Limited a platform upon which they could strengthen their offer.
We spoke to one of the business owners, Ade Adeosun about the impact of this support.

What is your motivation behind the business?
My business partners and I have turned a solid friendship into a successful business. All three of us have backgrounds in sales and, as a result, we have outgoing and vibrant personalities. We find it easy to talk to people, enjoying meeting new people, and we are committed to working hard to achieve our goals.
We’re all in our twenties and own a business! When we speak to our peers, they can’t believe it!
Seeing the surprised looks on people’s faces definitely keeps us going and motivated. We admire people such as Richard Branson and Alan Sugar. They haven’t come from privileged backgrounds, but they have done extremely well for themselves. Their stories continuously inspire us to be great.
