“When I was starting out and because the business model was completely novel, what Fishy Filaments really needed were friendly faces with thick address books. While the Cornish business scene is welcoming and well connected even then it sometimes takes one or two key people to see the links and bring people together. For me and my business idea Paul Holmes at Cornwall Chamber of Commerce was one of those key facilitators. We met at a Chamber of Commerce event and he took the time to understand what a random stranger had to say for himself, saw what was needed and set me on a course that ended up with funding for a radical new local business."
