Lisa and David will be taking Vegan Business Tribe on the road this weekend to support the Great Yorkshire Vegan Market – run by Vegan Events UK. If you are in the area, you can join us on Sunday 20th June 2021 at Leeds Kirkgate Market. But what are Vegan Business Tribe looking to achieve from attending a local vegan fair?
Research has shown that 64% of the UK’s workforce have aspirations to set up their own business but the vast majority of people remain as employees. David is joined by business coach Trevor Banerjee (who left behind his own corporate career) to talk about the realities of going from being employed to launching your own vegan business.
Ever wondered why apples are so shiny? Ever wondered what alcohol is filtered through? Ever thought about how they get refined sugar so white? Animal-derived products and ingredients have permeated every corner of our world. They are cheap, they are gruesome and often they are hidden – and it’s your duty to make sure they don’t get into your products.
Laura from Primary Veducation is on a mission to help schools be more inclusive for vegan children. And as a successful participant of our recent crowdfunding programme, Laura found (unlike our other members) that the majority of her backers were people she had no previous connection with. So just how did Laura buck the crowdfunding trend and get supported by complete strangers?
Do you ever feel like a fraud? Are you worried someone is going to find you out? Do you have an internal voice always questioning if you’re good enough? If so, this is something we really need to talk about. Because it’s not something that is unique to you – it’s called ‘Imposter Syndrome’.
Vegan Business Tribe launched just before the global pandemic hit. It’s been a wild ride for us all but we’ve managed to bring together an amazing community of vegan businesses. One year in, we now need your feedback to help us shape the next twelve months ahead.
Want to connect with other Vegan Business Tribe members? After trialling Slack as a communication tool for members to keep in touch with each other between meet-ups, we’re now rolling out the VBT Slack group to the rest of the Tribe! And we would love you to join us. Read on to find out how.
Vegan Speaking Skills Coach Steven Trister founded The Speaking Revolution after spending 14 years as a professional comedy actor. In this 40 minute workshop, Steven shows David how anyone can improve their speaking and why the biggest changes you can make is those in your head.
Lisa talks to Zoey Henderson about how she turned her love for functional mushrooms into a thriving craft-ale business, and answers the two questions on everyone’s mind when they hear about a beer made from fungus: does it taste like mushrooms, and will it get you high?!
Every month we feature one of our Vegan Business Tribe members in Vegan Food & Living Magazine – the UK’s best-selling vegan magazine. These companies may not always be the biggest vegan businesses, but they are all shining examples of how diverse the vegan business scene has become. Read all 12 interviews from the first year of our business column here.
