Watch March's Rise and Design on Podcasts

A Founder’s Journey- Industry Angel with Shaun Oakes from ievo- Recorded live at RTC North, Sunderland.

For March's Rise and Design we did something a little bit different to usual. We hosted a live podcast, put together by Industry Angel and featuring Shaun Oakes from ievo. Ian Farrar from Industy Angel and FarNorth gave us an introduction on the power of Podcasting, and how you could go about launching your very own podcast.

Shaun is the Managing Director at ievo biometric fingerprint readers. Shaun started the company in early 2009 with the aim to deliver biometric products for real world deployment. Shaun had the products designed and manufactured to deliver where many others have failed. This took a year in development and then they launched their first reader, the ievo ultimate™. This reader along with further product launches is renowned for being the industry leader and ievo now sell their products globally.

Ian and Shaun discuss:

  • Learning the ropes of retail
  • Starting out with biometric readers
  • Travelling globally to research products
  • From Distributor to Manufacturer
  • Learning lessons along the way
  • Scaling up
  • Audience Questions
