Does any of this sound familiar:

If this is you, then we know you will have had trouble finding a community and support that understands your vegan ethics.

That's why we built Vegan Business Tribe.

We were frustrated seeing so many great vegan businesses, just like yours, not able to get access to the advice they needed from people who understood why they had a vegan business.  But it’s not enough just to have a vegan business.  You cannot help us to move towards a vegan world unless you have a SUCCESSFUL vegan business.  Well, don’t worry – you have now found your tribe.

All paid members get access to:

Who are our vegan business experts Lisa and David?

Vegan Business Tribe was founded by Lisa and David from Promote Vegan – a vegan consultancy helping high street brands and large food companies better understand the vegan consumer.

Lisa and David also write the monthly business column for the UK’s biggest Vegan magazine, Vegan Food & Living as well as being the official UK agents for The Vegan Society’s Vegan Trademark.

We launched Vegan Business Tribe at the start of 2020 as a place to offer support for vegan businesses – but then the Covid-19 pandemic hit, and we simply had to do everything we could to make our main content free and accessible to as many vegan businesses as possible. 

We’ve succeeded!  And the amount of success stories and new friends we’ve made along the way has been phenomenal!  Read our full story here >

 

Frequently asked questions

We set out with the goal to help as many vegan businesses as possible.  The pandemic has caused uncertainty for many businesses, but for others it has provided a number of opportunities.  We want access to our advice and support to be available to as many vegan businesses as possible through our free basic-access membership.

The extra support we give through our paid membership tier helps to keep our main content free.  Every paid member has our gratitude that not only are we able to help them in a more hands-on way, but they are enabling hundreds of others who may not be in the same position to have access to our free content also.

Paid members get full access to all our online workshops, networking sessions and seminars.  Just head to our events page to book on.  Once you have booked you will receive an email with a link to the session via Zoom video meeting.

If you are signed in as a paid member, head over to the course page where you can click on the first chapter to start studying!  You can go through the course at your own pace, the site will keep a track of your progress if you mark each section as complete.

All future courses will also be available at no extra cost to all pay-monthly members.

Yes, you can!  If you need help with a topic or have a specific question relating to that section, post a question at the end of the chapter and Lisa or David will respond with their thoughts.

You can even read through everyone else’s questions (and Lisa & David’s answers) on that chapter to get even more insight.

There are several ways you can engage with us!  The quickest and easiest way is to post your question in the mentorship forum.  We’re active on here daily as well as other members in our community.

Second, you can join our next vegan business clinic.  These are run in small groups of members on Zoom with Lisa and / or David and is your chance to talk directly to us about your business and the advice you need.

Finally, if you are one of our amazing financial supporters then we include an hour Zoom call with Lisa and David each month, either as a general catch up for us to update you on Vegan Business Tribe or to talk about your business.

You can control all your account settings, including cancelling your membership at any time yourself, from your membership dashboard.

Note, your membership will remain active until your next renewal date.  If you have any issues with your subscription please email hello@veganbusinesstribe.com

Yes, go to your member’s dashboard (visible once signed in) and click on account settings.  Under the ‘payments’ menu option you can download an invoice for each month.

We regularly interview members for the website, our podcast, YouTube channel and a monthly business feature we write in Vegan Food & Living Magazine.

However, we want to highlight the best of vegan business.  That does not mean the biggest or even most successful, but those who are TRULY REMARKABLE.  If you have a specialist skill that you think other members would benefit from learning about, or have an amazing story to tell – or if you think we’ve never seen a vegan business like yours before – then please get in touch on hello@veganbusinesstribe.com

Note that we only feature companies that are vegan, or owned and run by vegan founders.

We love our members suggesting new topics for us to cover!  Email hello@veganbusinesstribe.com to let us know what you would like to see!

If you can’t find the answer to your question here, email us on hello@veganbusinesstribe.com
