MY BUZZ

We were thrilled to have been chosen by Theo Paphitis as a #SBS winner in January 2015. We have received hundreds of congratulatory tweets and have received a warm welcome in to the #SBS Family. The group is full of inspiring individuals and fantastic businesses that we are looking forward to getting to know better over the coming months. Within a week of winning, we had the chance to meet other #SBS winners and Theo himself at the ICC in Birmingham. We are certainly looking forward to the adventure of being an SBS winner and are so grateful to be a part of it. Thanks Theo!

MY BIO

Lostbox is the UK's fastest growing online Lost and Found service. We use the speed and reach of social media to reunite sentimental items and beloved pets with their owners. Our founder Clare, found an engraved gold wedding ring in 2012 and tried everything she could think of to reunite it with the owner. After seeing the response on social media to her appeal, she saw an opportunity to set up a national hub for everything lost and found across the UK. The website launched in 2013 and we now have over 100,000 social media followers across Facebook and Twitter, which help reunite hundreds of items every month. We have 22 fantastic volunteers which help run their regional Facebook page for Lostbox, helping others in their area whilst building brand awareness for Lostbox. We are looking forward to announcing several key partnerships in 2015 and also launching a coding system and APP which will improve our service and introduce additional revenue streams to the business.
