What do you do when your passion lies in male dominated field?
After graduating from university at the height of the recession in 2009, Amie Samba faced an uncertain future. Rather than living out this life of uncertainty, at the age of 22, she decided that entrepreneurship was for her.

Now she is listed as one of Ernst and Young’s top 50 social businesses in the UK.
Listen to how Amie came up with the idea for her business and about some of the unconscious bias that still exists in the sporting industry today.
