ShakeSphere was founded upon the need for a supplement shaker bottle suitable before, during and after a workout. Company founder Rick Beardsell, an elite level sprint athlete with numerous World and European titles, designed and developed the ShakeSphere bottle. The patented product eradicates the need for mixing accessories by using its capsule shape. As a result, powder doesn’t get stuck in the corners or on mixing accessories, which may happen with traditional shakers.
ShakeSphere has continually evolved during its testing and development period, taking on board feedback over the years from athletes, fitness enthusiasts, bodybuilders and coaches. In 2017 the founding partners appeared on BBC2's Dragon's Den and secured an investment.
“As a busy director trying to expand by ShakeSphere business it was always a difficult process to expand as fast as we wanted. Support was especially useful in understanding who you are selling to and the pricing model for different channels.
As with any new business there are always difficulties and we encountered problems with accountants, which as a team we eventually resolved.
There is no magic wand to launching any successful business but having the backing and support when needed has always helped.”
