Starting a Business During Lockdown

Over the last year of lockdown, many have been lucky enough to find a new passion, project or even a new business - even in a time where doing so has been incredibly challenging (possibly even more than usual). We talked to Rushab Shah, the founder of Portobello Vintage Market, who took his father's market business and built it into an ecommerce venture for high quality vintage shopping. He talked to us about the challenges and mistakes when starting, the importance of a business partner and lockdown being the push he needed to build his own business.
