About Holly & CO
Founded by Holly Tucker MBE, Holly & Co is cheer-leading the small business revolution in the UK. Holly & Co is a unique concept, the first of its kind. Our aim is to shine a light on the remarkable creatives, small business owners and Artisans who are the backbone of our societies.
We champion the butcher, the baker and the letterlight maker, as much as the illustrator, florist and paper bird artist. We’re here to demystify the grey world of business, once and for all – allowing dreams to take flight. We’ll also inspire in equal measure, through curating untold stories and putting on events that recharge the soul.
Whether you’re dreaming about starting a small business, you’re moonlighting every spare minute you get, or you’re already running your own enterprise.
Holly Tucker MBEFounder of Notonthehighstreet, Holly & Co, and UK Ambassador to Creative Small Business
Some might call me an entrepreneur, but I like to think of myself as an imagineer – someone who believes in the impossible and the power of creativity.
A decade after creating notonthehighstreet.com, one of the first small business marketplaces in the world, I’ve now decided to continue my life’s quest, to bring colour to the world of grey. How? By continuing to believe, champion and shine a light on the incredible talent of creative small business owners and Artisans across the world.
As the UK Ambassador to Creative Small Businesses, I’ll be working to positively influence this creative movement by amplifying its voice where it matters most. I want to make sure that handcrafted doesn’t become a thing of the past, and that talented Artisans have the support and tools they need to continue making a living doing what they love. I will be championing a new way of ‘doing’ business and growing, what I have named – The Good Life Companies.
We believe in the power of a creative community
We believe that birds of a feather flock together, so we’ve set out to build a creative community like no other, a place to share stories, learnings and generally inspire.
We shine a light on them, they tell us the struggles of running their businesses so we can try to advise and inspire. We also create exclusive products with them, which you can find the shop.
