Successful SWIG Start-Ups applicant and owner of the Cornwall Camper Company, Jess Ratty, looks back at her business start up journey and asks the question: Why SWIG Start-Ups?

Hi, my name is Jess Ratty and I own The Cornwall Camper Company. I want to talk to you about our journey towards setting up our business and how the support of SWIG Start Ups made it happen.

We are a young, fresh and keen new business based in Cornwall providing bespoke and exciting vintage VW campervan holidays in Cornwall.

Two years ago Ben Ford, the magic hands behind the restoration of the vans decided that he had always wanted to run his own business, and I said “well – what are you waiting for?” The Cornwall Camper Company was born and with his vast engineering knowledge and incredible ability to fix anything and everything – and my passion for PR, born from my years in the press office at the Eden Project we thought we could make a good team.
