Domini Hogg - entrepreneur Linkedin Founder Tried and Supplied Founder Rebel Dates At the age of 15 Domini founded her first business, beading jewellery for friends and family, which she continued until the end of school. After university, she launched a new fine jewellery brand focusing on bespoke commissions and engagement rings, which continues to this day. However, it is more recently that Domini has fully entered the world of entrepreneurship, quitting her day job as Director of Success at a software startup in January 2019, to start Tried and Supplied, a business on a mission to make the foodservice supply chain more sustainable through the use of software to overcome operational challenges. Working in the foodservice sector has made 2020 a challenging year and encouraged further entrepreneurial thinking and agile pivoting for the benefit of the business. Meanwhile in her personal life, frustration with dating apps this year naturally led her to try solving her own problem by creating Rebel Dates as a platform designed to replicate (as far as possible!) the natural dating process online.
