CO-FOUNDER OF MOUS
James Day is a co-founder of a fashion/tech hardware brand, Mous. Mous in the short run is solving all the headphone frustrations. After an internship at Procter & Gamble, James took the risky plunge into startup life, moving to a world of sofa surfing and teaming up with co-founders James Griffith and Josh Shires. In just 9 months, Mous has been through an incredible journey; from a successful Kickstarter for their first product, Musicase, an iPhone case that retracts earphones and coverage in the likes of the Daily Mail, Telegraph and CNN to moving co-founder Josh Shires permanently to China! The team are now gearing up to a big fashion launch this Christmas with retailers globally.

How will you become the best?
Keep on making mistakes and learning, keep being bold and ‘out of the box’ with my approach in order to create my own opportunities.
What fascinates you?
Business fascinates me! I just love learning the full end to end once I’ve done hardware successfully, I want to move to software and learn a whole different process and throw myself in the deep end again. Startups are just great, I am forever learning in areas ranging from Retail to IP to Manufacturing in China – it’s just crazy!
