Grenade founders Alan and Juliet Barratt
Following a shared passion for health and fitness, husband and wife Alan and Juliet Barratt founded sports nutrition start-up, Grenade, during the recession. After launching in 2010 with just £27 in the business bank, Grenade was sold for £72m to Lion Capital last year and since then has continued to grow strongly. It now has over 60 staff, and retails in more than 80 countries around the world.
Social Chain Agency 's Hannah Anderson
