Start-Ups Panel


Josh lives for building businesses and making products. He founded his first company Mous Products at the age of 23. Mous concepts, designs, engineers, manufactures and sells products in the tech accessory category. Mous went from 0 to turning over £30m+ in just four years and now employs over 80 people and it is still scaling.

Josh then partially exited the company in 2019 to take on new ventures in tech, founding the audio-visual 3D projection mapping company Duality which opened its first immersive venue in Sheffield in 2020. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic and having to focus on another of his start-ups, Fyous, the bar had to close in 2022. Josh continues his entrepreneurial journey with Fyous, which is pioneering new ways to manufacture custom-fit footwear utilising their Polymorphic moulding technology. As of 2022, Fyous has raised over £500,000 for the venture.
