International Brand of Choice: Irish-Owned Clevamama


How did two sisters, Suzanne Browne and Martina Delaney (unrelated to me), set up an Irish-owned and family-run baby products business Clevamama and in a decade achieve international success?  We’ll get to that but first, here’s one of the questions asked of Suzanne in an interview:

Suzanne’s parting words:  “Entrepreneurship is something everyone can have — you just need a plan, structure and belief.”
