Thank you 2017 for helping us to realise our dream and bring Become to the world!
As we look back on the past year our team is getting quite emotional thinking about everything that’s happened. We worked with 40 amazing women to help us refine our final design for the tank with their insight we launched Become back in October. It’s been such a delight to see the impact it’s made to so many of you in helping you to manage a daily frustration.
We would not have been able to get as far as we have done without the wonderful support of our early adopters so from all of us at Become we want to say a huge THANK YOU! Your comments, reviews and recommendations have kept us going when it was all getting a bit much and we didn’t think we would get here. You are such an amazing community.
As well as getting to know our customers, we also had the absolutely pleasure of meeting the other women who have taken a leap to create new clothing and innovation to support women with the menopause. Thank you to Jane at Esteem, Nancy and Eileen and Cucumber Clothing and the whole team at THINX and Icon. Our partners who have supported and promoted us showed us just how much women are hungry for intelligent and stylish solutions to the hot flush. If you haven’t seen them yet please do take a look at Maryon Stewarts wonderful videos, our article on Henpicked and the stunning photography from Michelle Tyler and these insightful words from Dr Rosy.
The Wellbeing of Women Christmas fair was the highlight of our year so far! A huge thank you to all the women, and men!, who made it an incredible day, see our full video here. The organisation has been innovating in women’s health for decades so if you aren’t yet familiar with their work you can find out more here.
Finally, we rounded off our journey with a face-to-face with the women of South West London at our stand in Richmond in the days before Christmas. Your words of wisdom and your excitement about Become were like a Christmas present in themselves!!
It’s been such a ride and we can’t wait to see where you will take us next year.
From all of us at Become have a wonderful holiday and New Year!
