Over the years GWIIN has showcased many remarkable and innovative products and many of our previous winners have gone on to establish successful businesses and achieve global recognition.

These include Mandy Haberman, inventor of the Haberman Feeder and the Anywayup Cup, Tish Fearn, who has signed a major distribution deal with B&Q for her Lite-Lift equine and gardening tools, and Dr Dawn Gibbins MBE, named Veuve Clicquot Business Woman of the Year 2004.




Unlike other cups, the Anywayup Cup has no gap above the valve in which drips can lurk. This is because drink only flows when your child drinks, the risk of tooth decay from comfort sucking is avoided.
Inventor,Mandy Haberman was the British Female Inventor of the Year 2000. She was a finalist in the Veuve Clicquot Business Woman of the Year Awards for 2003, and recognised by HM Queen Elizabeth as a Pioneer to the Life of the Nation.

Mandy Haberman - BFIY 2000 Winner 

Mandy, who was previously a graphic designer, has patented her unique inventions for protection. V&A Marketing Ltd in Cardiff sells the Anywayup Cup to 70 countries worldwide and it is licensed for sale in the United States. 

Mandy also invented The Haberman Feeder which is licensed for sale abroad. Sponsored by The Patent Office and Fair Play London, the event highlights the creative ideas of women at a time when patent applications in Britain are at an all-time high. 

Many of the women who competed for the awards have patented their inventions to deter people from copying them and claiming them as their own.


“I have had a brilliant term as British Female Inventor of the Year. The Award attracted a great deal of free publicity both in the press and on television. This has been a direct benefit to both sales of my product, the Anywayup cup, and to me personally. Most significantly, the title provided me with a platform from which to urge for much needed changes to the patent system. 

Public perception of inventors has always been of eccentric, bow-tie clad boffins essentially male. Before the competition I thought that, as a female inventor, I was out there on my own but I was wrong. 

The event has been a great opportunity to network with other like-minded women and make new friends”.  Mandy Haberman - BFIY 2000 Winner
