Welcome to UpStarts, a podcast series by The Conduit where we will focus on the stories of a diverse range of impact entrepreneurs, spanning industries, interests and influence. UpStarts will get to the heart of the journey of an impact entrepreneur, looking into how they built their companies, what problems they are trying to fix, their impact so far and their hopes for the future. What can we learn and action from their experience?

In this episode, Paul van Zyl, co-founder of The Conduit, is joined by Emma Shaw. Emma is the Co-Founder of Library of Things – a circular economy start-up tackling wasteful consumerism. Emma is an environmentalist and entrepreneur, having started her first business at school, she went onto study Natural Sciences at university in Cambridge and has been working in government and social innovation for the last 10 years. She received the coveted Women in Innovation Award from Innovate UK last year for her work on innovative funding for impact businesses.
