Hi, I’m Hannah, Founder of betternotstop.
It all started with a conversation with my Dad. Before he passed away in 2011, he told me not to settle and to never stop pursuing my dreams.
betternotstop was born from this advice, and it is central to everything I do to this day.
In 2019 I was shortlisted for Entrepreneur of the Year at the Made in Manchester Awards for my work encouraging people to create a life they love with the foundations of independence and social wellbeing. In November 2019, Betternotstop was a finalist in the WeWork Labs Pitch Competition held in Seoul, Korea.
In 2020 betternotstop was named one of the Top 10 startups to watch in Manchester and become a Manchester Carbon Hero. betternotstop also became a Certified Pending B Corporation and I furthered my studies with courses on B Corp Consultancy, Sustainable Leadership and Sustainable Entrepreneurship.
I have also completed my B Leader programme with B Lab UK which trains individuals to work with companies who want to become certified B Corps.
Through online articles, newsletters, business consultancy, B Corp Certification support, training and workshops and events, we help businesses and individuals create a better life for people and the planet, by supporting an ethical and sustainable approach to life and business.
Since launching the business (from my blog of the same name) in 2019 I’ve had some brilliant industry press (including Metro, Bustle and Sifted). I’ve partnered with growing Vietnamese startup CoXplore, been flown to Korea as part of a month-long government start-up programme and even interviewed a silicon valley VC as part of Barclays Eagle Labs.
betternotstop is building a growing community of people that collaborate, support and inspired each other. Let’s change how we work and live and create a better world.
The solution is betternotstop.
