The Entrepreneurial Spirit is booming in the UK, with the alcohol trade benefiting from an influx of innovative disruptors to the traditional model.
From craft beers to small batch distilleries, canned wine, and no-to-low alcohol ranges, it is the independents who seem to be driving trends towards bolder flavours and brave ideas and who have been ahead of the curve with organic, locally sourced, and healthier beverages.
This growth in independent start-ups has huge benefits for the consumer. Small businesses are more agile, can adapt quickly to changes in consumer tastes and can respond powerfully to local or global trends. Irene Graham, chief executive of the ScaleUp Institute, a campaign and research group, says the brightest future for the UK would involve big companies joining forces with entrepreneurs to bring their great ideas to market.
“Big companies should be working better with these innovators”.
The alcohol business has always welcomed free thinkers, the bathtub gin distillers of the prohibition era, are the ancestors of the informed consumer today who wants more choice and more information about what they’re drinking.
In November 2020 the inaugural Great British Entrepreneurs LIVE event will take place. A fabulous initiative to bring together bright minds and new ideas from across the country to encourage the next generation of inventors and creators.
We’re really excited to learn more about fellow entrepreneurs and start-ups so we will be following the website in the lead up to the event at: https://www.greatbritishentrepreneurawards.com
