Nick Mowbray was born on July 23, 1985(age 36 years) in New Zealand. He grew up in Cambridge and was educated at St Peter’s School. His father Harry Mowbray and mother Linda Mowbray owned a dairy farm. As a teenager, he helped his elder brother Mat to manufacture hot air balloons from Coke cans and plastic bags. After school, he started a law degree but dropped out in his first year.
In 2003, when the brothers were 18 and 22, they made a snap decision and moved to Hong Kong to set up a toy factory. With financing from their parents, they purchased an injection molding machine and started a company in Guangzhou, China.
The Mowbrays regard their entrance into the business world as naïve, as they had no experience, could not speak the local language, and had no knowledge of intellectual property legislation. In 2005, the brothers were joined by their sister Anna in their business.
The initial name of their company was Guru and this was changed to ZURU as Guru had been trademarked by another company. According to Mowbray, by the end of 2020 ZURU employed 8500 people, had 26 offices, and a turnover of over $1 billion.
