The company was recognized as one of this year’s Most Extraordinary Business Leaders this week at the Great British Entrepreneur Awards 2022 Grand Final in London.
Co-founders Davies and Naomi Roberts were named Small Business Entrepreneur of the Year at a ceremony at Grosvenor House in London, where 1,400 entrepreneurs and employees gathered to celebrate a combined turnover of £2 billion and more than 17,000 jobs.
This was the Lansing-based company’s second award this month after receiving the Innovation Award at the Adure & Worthwhile Business Awards for the second year in a row.
Naomi added: “We are passionate about what we do, so it is a real honor to be recognized with these awards from both the local and national business communities.”
Flair designs and manufactures breakthrough audio technology solutions that improve people’s sound experience and prevent distortion that damages the ear. The company’s range of earphones revealing details has earned them a huge following from well-known musicians and manufacturers, and its best-selling Calmer range helps people reduce stressful sound frequencies to ‘calm down their environment’ Is. Flair also helps people with sound sensitivity such as misophonia, hyperacusis and people with autism.
The company is making waves with a new ‘Mirror Image Sound’ earphone range, launched via crowdfunding – Flare’s Indiegogo campaign was fully funded in just hours.
Francesca James, founder of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards, said: “The extraordinary circumstances of recent years have tested the resilience of our business communities, and the challenges have been enough to give many entrepreneurs an excuse to give up. Instead, our award winners did the opposite and through ingenuity, innovation and adaptability they thrived.
