Whenever we have someone sign up as a Leicester Startups member we’re going to introduce them to the community.

So, say hello to Emma Gavin!


Market Harborough

What’s your startup?

E.L.S.G is the over arching name and Legends of Olympus: Adventure Quests is the first part of a series of things with books and merch to come.

It is a three-part business, fantasy books focused on the Greek Gods, Adventure Quests in the real world and artwork showcasing the characters. There is a strong emphasis on supporting local businesses and artists throughout.

Where did the idea come from?

I have had an idea for a novel(s) for a while and after a visit to London earlier in the year it has expanded to encompass a couple of other elements.

Where are you at right now with it?

Im working on an MVP and will be launching the beta test Sat 11th November

Is there anything you’d like help with right now?

At the moment I’m okay but as time goes on support with things will most definitely be needed!

How can you help other founders? Do you have a skill that you could offer?

I have a background in fitness, weightlifting, personal training and digital marketing and can offer advice and support for staying focused, incorporating healthy habits, exercise and good nutrition to maintain momentum and motivation. As well as ideas for digital marketing and maybe guerilla marketing.
