“Live by corporate standards, but breathe like an entrepreneur…”
Carun UK is a specialist organic hemp producer that provide a wide-range of skincare and food supplements containing active compounds such as CBD.
The brainchild of Czech entrepreneur Michal Takac, it was he who persuaded Jenny to invest in him. Although, there wasn’t much persuading needed really, as the two of them clicked very quickly on a personal level while in Dragon’s Den.
Since then, Michal can’t speak highly enough about Jenny and her company. From her strategy, her help with moving the business forward to assisting him on an almost daily basis with Carun UK.
Jenny is well known for investing in people rather than their companies. Touchingly, Michal has said he will never forget her telling him, “I believe in you!”
Since then Carun UK, under Jenny’s watchful eye, are now stocked in more than 150 pharmacies and over 100 wellbeing shops, bringing the benefits of wide spectrum CBD in active hemp to thousands more people.
Jenny is the Founder of YourCash Europe. From the very early days of her initial investigations into purchasing YourCash, she had clear ideas of what the business could and would achieve under her guidance and leadership. She introduced the company to growth strategy plans that focussed on core business, nurturing partnerships with Financial Institutions, developing new European markets and identifying new revenue streams. In 2016, Jenny sold YourCash to a US business quoted on the New York Stock Exchange.
