Interior designer Catherine “Cath” Kidston is known for her namesake home and accessories brand which has become a household favourite; worth an estimated £250m. A perfect replacement for Hoppen, Kidston sold the majority share of the company to a private equity firm in 2010 and, although she still operates as creative director, theoretically the millionairess has time on her hands to invest in emerging start-ups.
