Growing businesses need nurturing so they can put down deep roots, grow up and then branch out. We call these businesses “saplings”.
Like other saplings, you have a desire to do extraordinary things. You have a big vision. You want to make a real impact. You’re playing the long game and plan to weather the seasons.
We like that a lot. It’s why we named our business after ones like yours.
Food has always been a huge passion of mine. From a young age I used to sit on the kitchen countertop and watch my mum cooking all sorts of incredible dishes.
For years I dreamed of starting my own food business or opening a restaurant or a deli. But I always heard the same advice: DON’T DO IT!
Regardless, I was determined to find a way…
While part of my food business dream had come true, I wanted to do more.
My wife and I co-founded The Food Rush, an online magazine about ethical and sustainable food. Despite our tech backgrounds, experience of working with big brands and online retailers, we realised that building and marketing a startup was a completely different story.
As our network grew we heard the same thing again and again: building a food business is HARD.
Many founders struggle with how to get started – particularly when it comes to sales and marketing. So, we set out to teach them what we had learned so they could sidestep the biggest mistakes and get started in the simplest, fastest and cheapest way possible.
We do this in three main ways:
What started as a simple dream to work in food has become so much bigger and we’re honoured to work with so many incredible people every single day. But more than that, we’re excited to be playing a small part in creating a better future of food.
So, are you a sapling? Take a moment to tell us a bit about your business. We’d love to hear from you and see what we can create together.Get in Touch
