If you have a vegan business, you have found your tribe

Have a question about joining?

Is it too much to say I love you guys?!?!?!  THANK YOU SO MUCH!!  We are sitting down to go through some more planning and strategising and this has just made our lives so much easier.  Awesome, awesome, awesome!!

Signing up to Vegan Business Tribe was one of the best things I ever did. I genuinely feel part of a community and the love and support is immeasurable!

BRILLIANT!! If you run a vegan business and you’re not signed up to their tribe, or listen to their podcast, seriously get to it, you will learn SO MUCH in such an enjoyable way! I listen to it on their website while I’m working, or when I’m out and about I listen on Spotify. Do it! You won’t regret it!

Thanks for being so engaging, direct and empowering. I’m not sure I would have so much energy after doing a day of Zoom calls with new members! Who would have thought we could get through so many important topics in 30 minutes! I’ve already booked on the next networking event!

We love Vegan Business Tribe!  It’s great to feel part of an understanding community. I was a little daunted at the prospect of a ‘networking’ event, but my fears were unfounded.  VBT is very different from my preconceived notions of the corporate business world. Thank you for creating something really special.

I LOVE what you are doing and the community. It’s my fave community at this moment and I think it’s because of David and you. You have wonderful personalities that draw us to you, you represent what we represent, you’re friendly, joyful, committed, organised, and lead by great example. Truly inspiring!

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, which is why we make our weekly content free for everyone (registration as a free member required to access).

However (as we tell all our members!) for a vegan business to be successful it has to be financially sustainable! Our paid membership tiers not only give you full access to our community, site and online events, but also help to keep our main weekly content free for everyone.

Some people also want to give more each month to help support our mission, which is why we also introduced our supporter level of membership which includes a monthly catch-up with Lisa & David.

Yes you can – but we ask you to do it using the tools that are provided as part of your membership!  All paid members get a welcome 30 minute 1-2-1 chat with Lisa and David so that we can get to know you and find out more about your business.

For ongoing support, you can ask Lisa and David for their support through the forums or you can join our live business clinics to talk about your business in a small group.

Our supporter members also get a one-hour meeting each month on Zoom with Lisa & David, to either catch up with the latest from VBT or to talk about your business.

It is our veganism that brings us all together as business owners rather than our geography.

We are based in the UK, so this means that UK and European members make up the majority of our members at present – but we also have members from New Zealand, Japan, Canada, the USA, Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia and many other countries!

Because of our increasing number of members in other countries, we have now added events suitable for those in other timezones.

Not at all! Vegan Business Tribe is run by a couple 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!

We cover funding extensively in our content and have interviewed a number of experts and investors about funding a vegan business for our members. We have even run our own crowdfunding programme for members!

If funding is your biggest question at the moment then talk to us about this in our welcome 1-2-1 and we will signpost you to lots of information for where to start.

Live events are accessible to all our paid members.  Just log-in, head over to the events page, select your event and click the calendar link to book.

You will receive a Zoom link (and reminders before the event) after you book.  If you would like text reminders, remember to add your mobile number!

Our full marketing course is part of our paid membership.  Just head over to the marketing course page, scroll down to the module list and click on the first section to begin!

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.

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

Note, if you cancel your membership it will remain active until your next monthly renewal date.  If you have any issues with your subscription please email

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

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 to let us know what you would like to see!

If you can’t find the answer to your question here, email us on

What's the latest on Vegan Business Tribe?

How big is the marketplace for a vegan business?

You may have been told that vegan is too much of a fad to launch into, or it’s too small a marketplace to grow a successful business. But what’s the truth about that, and if that’s the case why are so many vegan businesses growing so quickly right now?

Let’s take a look at how big the marketplace is for a vegan business or service.
