With the increasing challenges, young brands face and limited access to HANDS-ON SUPPORT, I founded Onwards and Up in 2017. My goal was to deliver where others have left off. Working with amazing businesses across wholesale, exporting, and online presence. Greatly supported by a range of creative partners adding value and making a difference.
