Clear Returns - Founded January 2012Clear Returns

The mission here is to save the global retail market billions in lost sales. With so much gloom on the High Street, Clear Returns brings the good news retailers are waiting for.
Product returns from ecommerce cost £10 billion in the UK last year. One in three garments bought online is sent back, wiping out profit margins and leaving product out of circulation precisely when customer demand is at its peak. That’s a huge amount of pain for retailers.

Clear Returns offers a patent-pending solution. Their predictive technology looks for tell tale signs of returns before they occur. They turn an otherwise inevitable return into an exchange or sales opportunity – a win-win for both retailers and their customers.

The Bicycle Academy - November 2011the bicycle academy

Make a bike. Make a difference. Learn how to make bikes, keep the skills and give your first bike to someone who really needs it. The Bicycle Academy give people the lessons, skills and kit to design and make their own bikes. But there’s a big difference.

Each student at The Bicycle Academy will make a bike designed especially to use in Africa. Students keep the skills they learn and their first bike will go to someone who really needs it.

Once they’ve made their frame for Africa, graduates can come back to the workshop to hone their skills and build their own frames. Everyone wins.
