Describe the company – the elevator pitch …

Positivity Pack, the perfect chill-out kit after those horrible, rainy, hair-pulling, frustrating and unfortunate days.

If there’s someone in your life right now that you think needs a bit of cheering up, you can do so right now by surprising them with a Positivity Pack, or even get one for yourself.

Prices start from only 6 euro to spread that Friday good vibe feeling!

How are you different?

Positivity Pack is the only place to get an item like this, it’s a very unique idea, especially with the new POP! tier which includes loads of bubble wrap and fun snaps. The popping sensation releases stress and calms people (Note: May be a lot of fun!).

Why will the company / product do well?
I think it’ll do well because it’s essentially just spreading happiness, and it can be personalized to include a custom message with your name/anonymous which you can then send to a friend. People like this aspect to make others happier, and I like giving them the option to do just that.

Where are you based?
I’m based in Limerick, Ireland.

When was the company launched?
I’ve been working on it, alongside other projects for about a year now but in the past few weeks I have been focusing on this project – and it’s starting to get some momentum, which is fantastic.

What have been your biggest wins to date?

It has won 3 awards so far – Junior Spiders Best Concept, Outbox Incubator Most Liked Project and Best Pitch, and it’s starting to gain momentum now, so I’d say the biggest win would be everyone taking notice of it!

What type of people (market segment) are you trying to attract to your product?

I’m trying to attract anyone who’s first of all, interested in startups (Especially ones led by young founders) and second of all people with the thoughtful, caring attitude who want to brighten up someone else’s day/week, or their own, to help them de-stress!

Tell us about your team?

It’s just me on the team. I’m a 17 year old entrepreneur with an interested in tech. I’ve won 10 awards, and I’m extremely passionate about my startup!

What are you long term plans for your product / company?

I’d like to develop my startup both offline and online, with more resources to de-stress and spread even more happiness.

I’ve tons of new ideas for it, and I’m going to keep working on them!

What are your favourite tech gadgets?
I’m getting into taking professional photos recently, so I’m starting to like cameras, and then the ability to use a card reader to take the photos to your computer and start editing.

What tech gadgets do you wish you could use to help you?
Microsoft Surface Pro. I’m in love with this. Words don’t describe how much I want this – I’ll definitely be buying it as soon as I can!!
