In 2011 she started and was one of the very first Zoo Project members in 2012. Hannah wanted to create a site that incorporated every aspect of a woman’s life, from fashion to family, travel to home - StyleNest quickly became a destination site with ecommerce at the heart aimed at women aged 30/40. Hannah exited the business in 2015 and now heads up product for Bauer Xcel. As one of the Zoo Project’s first ever residents, Hannah is excited to be part of this year’s panel as a 'Dragon', and hopes to pass on the knowledge she acquired from the scheme to young entrepreneurs starting their own businesses.
