Virgin StartUp meetup: How I validated my idea

So you have an awesome business idea – congratulations! But before you plough all of your money, time and effort into it (and trust us binging Netflix will be a thing of the past) – how can you be sure this idea will work? Come and find out how to validate your business idea and persuade not only yourself but also investors, friends and future employees, that you’re onto a winner.

Speakers :

Selma Nicholls , CEO of Looks Like Me

For over a decade Selma worked in theatre/dance as a freelance Producer, arts facilitator and recently transitioned to CEO of Looks Like Me, a child talent/model agency.

Founded by Selma and motivated by Riley-Ann her three-year-old daughter questioning her own identity (wanting straight hair and white skin), the duo are the first agency redefining beauty, whilst raising the profile of underrepresented groups in advertising and fashion.  Providing exceptional talent, models, families and extraordinary beautiful campaigns. 

Looks Like Me secured a Start Up Loan from Sir Richard Branson's Virgin StartUp company and are growing from strength to strength.   LLM talent/models have been featured in Creative Soul Photography World Tour - representing London, ISOSSY Children for London Fashion Week, ChristmasSOwhite campaign to name a few. 

Selma is a monthly contributor on Junior Style London, the leading online destination for independent children’s fashion.  Through our diverse talent/models and imagery we prepare, represent, celebrate and illuminate underrepresented children and families, providing opportunities that have meaningful impact and positively representing many people globally.
