Virgin StartUp meetup: How I made social media work for my business
Social media is no longer just an optional channel for startups and small businesses. It's an essential way of connecting with your audience and getting your brand out there in front of people - plus it's much cheaper than other, more traditional, marketing channels. However, with hundreds of thousands of brands clamouring for attention, how can you ensure that your social media efforts add value? With a social strategy, that's how. Come and meet those who are putting social media at the forefront of their business and find out how and why you should do the same.

Milk Tooth offers a mix of upcycled vintage one-offs and original designs inspired by female icons throughout time. Ernestina has a background in TV production and brand communications. She launched the business with her partner just over a year ago and continues to work full-time as Head of Campaigns for Virgin, alongside creatively directing Milk Tooth LDN.
Elsie and Dominika - Founders of Clean Beauty Co
We are Elsie and Dominika, founders and clean beauty lovers. When we went from reading food labels to reading our beauty product labels, we were pretty disappointed and occasionally horrified. We decided to make a change by making our own products and documenting our journey into clean beauty. Through our blog and Instagram, we are building a modern DIY beauty brand that makes natural and nontoxic beauty accessible. We believe that everyone can be empowered to take control of what they put on their skin.
