1. Deskmate ($360K/year)

Ashley 'JP' Lockwood, the co-founder of Deskmate, came up with the idea for the business after working at a coworking space and realizing the lack of affordable standing desks in the UK market. Through research and recognizing the gap in the market, he and his business partner launched Deskmate as a side hustle, and they have since sold over 5,000 units to nearly 100 countries. With a background in e-commerce, Lockwood was able to quickly design and prototype their first product, and they launched the business within 3 weeks with a pop-up at WeWork. Since then, they have utilized various sales channels, including direct-to-consumer, B2B, and wholesale, along with partnerships with companies like Virgin and WeWork to attract and retain customers. The business is focused on continuing to grow and aims to sell over 1 million units in 2020.
