Name: Georgina Lake
Business: Bunch
Location: Bristol


With formal training in floristry and 7 years working as a florist, Georgina wanted to start her own business so that she could control her own future and gain more creative freedom. Georgina was referred to SWIG for funding via Business West and successfully received a Start Up loan so she was able to set up her new florists, Bunch, in Bristol.

Bunch specialises in exotic, tropical flowers and local handmade gifts with a vintage style and to date, is the only florist in its area.

The investment from SWIG and support from Business West has not only enabled the business to get off the ground but it has also provided Georgina with a marketing and advertising budget.

Georgina said that it had always been a dream to start her own business. “
“After many years of working for other florists, combined with the guidance I received, I finally had the experience and advice to start my own business and work for myself.”
