 Ireland has long been synonymous with creativity and entrepreneurial endeavors and there's a long list of successful business people on these shores. Vera Ann Rogers from Waterford may be the newest kid on the block with her idea. As part of her transition year studies, she was asked to come up with a business idea.

Something that sprung to mind was setting up a swim hat business with a unique twist. A design your own, custom made hat with the opportunity to have your name printed on the side. A simple addition but one that can make a coach's life so much easier as they issue directives. Here's a bit more about why and how Vera makes her designs.


What made you think of think of this?

The reason why I came up with this for my TY business is that I was looking for a high-quality silicone hat that would stay on my head without coming off. The personalising and brand followed after going to see the ISL and I thought it looked good when they had their names on their hats.

How many years have you been swimming with Waterford Crystal?

I have been swimming now with Waterford Crystal for 3 years. I was a late starter but after swimming with surf lifesaving wanted to improve my swimming and now love training 6 mornings a week.

What do your friends think of your idea?

All my friends and coaches along with all the parents think it is a great idea because they are able to tell their child apart from the rest.

Do you come up with the designs yourself?

Yes, I did use a software package. I played around until I was satisfied with the logo and the brand name. The quality of the hat is the key point and took me ages to find the right supplier.

Thanks to Vera for taking the time to tell us about her business venture. We wish her all the best with it.
