Doug Richard and Rosie Wolfenden

The leading entrepreneurs answer your questions

This week's lunchtime masterclass is with Dragons' Den star Doug Richard and Rosie Wolfenden, co-founder of jewellery label Tatty Devine.

Doug and Rosie are both ambassadors of the School for Creative Startups enterprise.

Doug is a successful entrepreneur with 20 years’ experience in the development and leadership of technology and software ventures, and featured in the first two TV series of Dragons' Den.

Rosie started jewellery label Tatty Devine in 1999 with art school friend Harriet Vine, and the pair quickly sold out of early designs on London market stalls before opening their first store on Brick Lane. They became known for witty, colourful jewellery design and now have two award-winning stores as well as over 300 stockists. Creative partnerships include Selfridges, Gilbert and George, Tate, the V&A and Rob Ryan.

Doug has always been a champion for startups and small businesses and he has actively mentored, coached and supported many entrepreneurs. His current project, School for Creative Startups, is a unique programme designed to teach creative people how to build successful startups and live from their endeavour. Rosie is a Titan of Industry at the School for Creative Startups, and also an ambassador for the Everywoman network.

This web chat is now closed but you can read all the questions posed to Rosie and Doug and their replies, below.
