Joshua Stevens, 28, started his first business aged 13, when he bought a motorised scooter from China and sold it for double the price. His latest venture is One Retail Group, a four-year-old business that owns six consumer brands, including Pro Breeze dehumidifiers, The Body Source range of beauty products, and Active Era, a sports and outdoor brand. The London company designs the products in-house and then outsources manufacturing to 18 factories worldwide. It sells online, through its own website and retailers such as Amazon, and dispatches more than 2,000 orders a day across seven countries in Europe and North America. Sales reached an annualised £5.9m in 2016, and are forecast to rise 154% to £15m this year. It plans to launch in high-street stores and new export markets, including China.
