Keeping cool

A thirsty moment in a Leeds lecture theatre sparked the idea of a reusable bottle for people who like their water cold. With support from the Leeds enterprise scheme, James Butterfield (Management 2011) developed a water bottle that keeps its contents cold. After graduating, James launched Chilly’s reusable bottles from a market stall in London. Now his company is one of Britain’s fastest-growing private companies, according to The Sunday Times.
