College life[edit | edit source]

Mr Taylor attended the University of Warwick from 2001 to 2005 where he studied Manufacturing Engineering (achieving a first Class Honours).[1] Admitting to having "burned up one year partying", Mr Taylor took the decision to try and get involved in as many extra-curricular activities as possible, including One World Week day manager, Warwick Business School executive, Entrepreneur Society exec, Engineer Student Staff Liaison committee member and set up three companies.

Lehman Brothers[edit | edit source]

Mr Taylor joined Lehman Brothers in 2006 in Mergers & Acquisitions, thereby "achieving [his] childhood dream".[2] However, Mr Taylor was made redundant in 2008 during the Banking Crisis and returned to New York, where he witnessed his mother struggling with large bags of dry dog food.[3] He predicted that many pet owners would share these problems and pet food was a "regular [and] predictable purchase.[4] He introduced the 'Bottomless Bowl', an auto-repeat delivery service on pet food in the UK.

PetShop uk[edit | edit source]

PetShop uk (formerly PetShopBowl Ltd) was founded in 2010 with the help of a £5,000 Prince's Trust loan by Mr Taylor and his partner Alexandra Tamasan (now wife). The couple left London in 2008 to set up their business at an incubator attached to Warwick University. In 2014, the business turned over £3 million and began exporting to Europe.[5] Mr Taylor hopes to reach the £10 million benchmark, after which he admits he will "celebrate".[6]
