With so many non-vegan companies now selling plant-based products or offering vegan services, it’s never been more important to be able to show that you are a genuine vegan business. Our Certified Vegan Business trademark is the way to prove that your company is run on vegan ethics and puts the vegan cause at the heart of your business, and as a VBT member you get £100 discount on registration.

Who are our vegan business experts Lisa & David?

Vegan Business Tribe was founded by Lisa and David 3 years ago whilst running Promote Vegan, a vegan consultancy helping high street brands and large food companies better understand the vegan market.

David is a former ambassador for the Chartered Institute of Marketing and has built (and sold!) a number of previous successful businesses; Lisa writes the monthly business column for the UK’s biggest Vegan magazine, Vegan Food & Living. Lisa and David also work with The Vegan Society as their official UK agents for The Vegan Trademark.

We launched Vegan Business Tribe at the start of 2020 and the success stories we’ve helped generate along with the new friends we’ve made along the way have been phenomenal!

Got a question? Check out our FAQs:

We define a ‘vegan business’ as a business that is an extension of your own vegan ethics. Your business must not sell any product or service that contains animal ingredients or does harm animals in any way. We have a lot of members with vegan businesses that don’t lead with the vegan message at all – we love a bit of vegan by stealth!

Vegan Business Tribe is a support community for vegans who have a business or who are business professionals. So as you would expect, almost all of our members are vegan. 

We do welcome members who have a vegan business and are also on the way to becoming vegan themselves. Often having the support of other vegans around you will help you take that final step. If you are not vegan yourself (and have no interest in being so) then we would ask you to think about your motivation for wanting to join a vegan support group.

It is our shared ethics that brings us together as business owners rather than our geography. Because we are based in the UK, many of our members are European, but we also have lots of members in the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and many other countries. Because of this, we make sure we cover all time zones with our live online events.

Yes you can!  You get a free 20-minute Zoom call with our founder and vegan business expert David when you sign-up where you can pick his brains on anything! David also offers 121 coaching (at an additional fee) for members who want more hands-on support.

Not at all!  Vegan Business Tribe was founded by a couple (David and his wife Lisa) and a number of our members are the same.  If you run your business with a partner, friend or family member then you are welcome to join all our live events, business clinics and networking events as a twosome.

No, you are completely in control. You can cancel your membership at any time yourself using the member dashboard when you are logged in.

Absolutely! A number of our members are pre-launch or currently have another job while they are planning their business. Having others around you on the same journey really helps you get a business off the ground.

We can help YOU get your business funded. We cover funding extensively in our Vegan Business Academy and have interviewed a lot of experts and companies who have gained funding themselves about how they did it. If you are thinking about crowdfunding, then we have a lot of resources to teach you how to do this successfully in our Academy.

If funding is your biggest question at the moment then talk to David about this in your welcome session and he will signpost you to lots of information for where to start.
