Steven Bartlett to mentor Liverpool digital humans creator

Sum Vivas, the Liverpool-based ‘digital humans’ creator behind Dex, the digital human DJ, has won a mentorship with Dragons’ Den’s Steven Bartlett through Fiverr’s Break the Breakthrough programme.

This programme aims to bolster support for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) across the UK, facilitating their growth and success in the digital landscape. Through the partnership, freelancer platform Fiverr and Bartlett are committed to providing essential resources, guidance, and expertise to assist SMBs in realising their full potential.

Successful grantees will be awarded £10,000 in Fiverr Credits, dedicated guidance from a Fiverr customer success manager and a 45-minute mentorship session with one of Britain’s most respected entrepreneurs.

“We are thrilled to have been chosen as the winners for Fiverr and Steven Bartlett’s initiative to support UK SMBs,” said Denise Harris, CCO, at Sum Vivas

“Sum Vivas represents the epitome of innovation and efficiency, offering businesses access to cutting-edge digital solutions. This partnership underscores our commitment to driving growth and success for businesses across the UK.”

Bartlett added: “One of the most common mistakes I see business owners make is trying to take on everything themselves. Discovering Fiverr was transformative for me, every time I needed an expert or professional specialising in digital services it became my default marketplace. Rather than attempting to do things that are not in my skill set, I hired experienced freelancers in their field. As a result, I was able to accomplish more, and focus on growing my business.”

Bukki Adedapo, UK Country Manager at Fiverr, added: “We’re thrilled to be continuing our long-term relationship with Steven. His inspirational mentorship style and drive to help fellow entrepreneurs align with our mission to connect businesses with highly skilled professionals. Following rough economic headwinds, skills shortages and rising costs, UK businesses continue to face hurdles that impact their growth. This competition enables SMBs to get first-hand access to a powerhouse entrepreneur and specialised freelance consultation. We’re excited to see freelancers become indispensable partners for these SMBs, helping them in their breakthrough journey.”

As Sum Vivas prepares to embark on a transformative journey alongside Fiverr and Steven Bartlett, it remains steadfast in its mission to revolutionise the way businesses operate and succeed in the digital human era.
