Meet the 2016 Sponsors- Grovewood Ventures

By May 24, 2016General

Getting a product from state to state is one thing, going from country to country is another. So how do you get a product internationally? Utilize companies like Grovewood Ventures! Grovewood Ventures has been a part of Make48 before, but this June they are now officially a sponsor. This company is not your traditional distribution company.

What Grovewood Ventures does is more exciting things, and has a further reach than just distribution. Grovewood sources and represents various products and brands they also work the other way round, acting as dealmakers. They find UK partners for overseas retail buyers, distributors, and agents. Their “deal making” service is growing rapidly and establishing markets in the United States.

Simon Parker started Grovewood Ventures and is known as the New Product Specialists. With years of experience, sourcing predominantly from the US, he has launched numerous first to market, award winning, category creating and defining products in the UK and EU. More recently he has started distributing/representing several successful Shark Tank companies. Uniquely the service offered is very much a white glove service with each product truly becoming part of the Grovewood family rather than just another SKU in a catalogue.

Strategic partnerships with key distributors throughout the UK and Europe offer a fast track route to retail. Grovewood exhibits at all key trade and consumer shows and retain the services of a renowned PR agency ensuring the products represented are always exposed to UK consumers. If you have a great product and are interested in European distribution Simon would love to hear from you, or

Cannot wait to see Grovewood Ventures at the next Make48 competition!
