Founder of DrivenMedia.
Ed Hollands is the entrepreneur behind DrivenMedia, the Derby-based advertising agency which creates mobile billboards on commercial trailers for brands, organisations and businesses as they travel across the UK
Inspiration struck when he saw traffic – including several large, plain lorries – queuing at a busy roundabout as rush hour traffic began to build. He realised the scope for offering companies a different type of marketing opportunity was huge in this highly congested yet unreachable space.
Today the business has worked with brands such as Ice Lolly, Canna and Yboo.
You may have seen Ed face the dragons on the BBC television show Dragons Den (Aired Feb 2018), where he walked away with a £30,000 investment from Jenny Campbell.
The business has gone from strength to strength since.
Ed aims to inspire others to follow in his footsteps.
