012 - Live: How to fund a vegan business (part 1)
Recorded live at VegfestUK, we bring together three experts in funding vegan businesses in this special two-part episode. The money IS out there. If you have a really keen idea for a vegan business, or even better if you’ve already proven a vegan business and now need more funds to scale it up, then there is a lot of interest in backing vegan and plant-based businesses right now.
But it might be if you don’t have the contacts, or you’ve never tried to go out and find money before that you don’t know where to start. So in this panel, I interview three experts in vegan funding: Nick Mayhew of VFin, who compares both the traditional and modern ways of raising money; Claire Smith, founder of Beyond Animal and Beyond Investing who is herself an impact investor; and Mike Hill, co-founder of One Planet Pizza who talks about his first-hand experience of raising money as the company grew. Finally, after the interviews, we then bring all the experts together to answer questions that were submitted by members of Vegan Business Tribe which you really don’t want to miss, because there is just as much information in the Q&A session at the end as the individual interviews.
