Rob MacArthur: founding a successful company

'Hi. My name's Rob MacArthur. I walked into the British Library one year ago with a rough idea of what I wanted to do and I walked away with a successful business called Nourish Foods. It's now been trading for almost one year.

I was lucky enough to have a one-to-one session with Tim Campbell. We sat down together and decided who I was going to sell to, what I was going to sell and what price I was going to sell it at. We put together a really firm business plan that helped me move forward.

I strongly recommend anyone who has got a business idea of their own to get down to the British Library and see what they can do for you.'
