The Pop Gym, a fitness organisation started in Bury St Edmunds nine months ago, has been part of a think tank event held at the Prime Minister’s residence 10 Downing Street.
It represented the health and wellness industry and was selected from over 150 UK start-ups.
Along with 10 other industry representatives co-founder Justin Bone met and spoke with special advisor to the Prime Minister Jimmy McLoughlin to give feedback about the rural economy for new businesses.
He said: “It was an honour to be part of this important, monthly event and to meet other businesses with diverse interests and stories.
“It was fascinating to learn about the topics that the Government are particularly keen to address, one of which is the obesity crisis”.
