HOW TO SCALE UP
How do you scale up a business? How do you go from where you are now to breaking into the mass market? We’ve gone out and found the answers by talking to the companies who have done it.
Join us for a series of 3 brilliant interviews with some amazing vegan business founders to learn how they scaled up.
There are certain questions that we get asked a lot about at Vegan Business Tribe and how to scale up your business is definitely one of those questions. How do you take what you are doing (maybe from your own home or kitchen if you’re making a food product) and go from where you are now – to breaking into your first retailers, to building up to your first hundred stockists, to eventually selling across the country, in the supermarkets and beyond?
So we’ve gone out and found the answers by talking to the vegan businesses who have actually gone out there and done it.
Although we’ve focused mainly on food and drink businesses in this collection, the foundations of scaling up are the same no matter what industry you are in. If you DO have a food or drink business then you are going to take away some extra detail, but the information you are going to learn is relevant whether you sell a product, have a service company or even a charity or not-for-profit.
Because when you talk to the founders of vegan companies who have successfully scaled up their businesses, you start to see a lot in common with how they did it. So we look at how three vegan businesses successfully scaled up and what we can learn from how they did it.
