(PRWEB UK) 14 July 2012
Following a busy and exciting first year in business Turtle Tots is delighted and excited to announce that we have been selected by Startups 100 as one of the most exciting, creative and innovative start-up businesses in the UK today.
Turtle Tots is an innovative and unique swimming programme, which begins during pregnancy with aqua-natal yoga, and continues once the baby is born with specialist baby and toddler swimming classes. Not only does it focus on teaching babies and young children to swim, it also promotes pre-natal and post-natal fitness and provides an excellent toning workout for mums.
Last year co-founders Gabrielle Lixton and Caroline Sparks decided to offer others the opportunity to run their own Turtle Tots business and launched Turtle Tots Ltd as a licencing company. Already there are 13 licencees trading throughout the UK, with more due to start later this year.
Commercial Director Caroline Sparks commented: “We are very proud to be included in this prestigious list of top new 100 UK companies. The Startups website is a fantastic and well-regarded resource of valuable and useful information for anyone with a new or established business of any size. To be recognized in this way is a huge honour. It also proves that new businesses can thrive in this difficult economy.”
Launched in 2008, the Startups 100 was the first and original round-up of the top 100 start-ups in the UK. Four years on, they are continuing to recognise and celebrate new businesses and it’s now their flagship feature, published every two years. Previous winners have gone on to phenomenal successes.
