We’re delighted to announce that the first keynote speaker for FuSIon Fest is Alan Mahon from the socially aware startup Brewgooder.
We’re big fans of good beer, so it’s good to see beer doing good, and that’s exactly what Brewgooder do.
Alan is the Founder of Brewgooder, the craft beer brand on a mission to bring 1,000,000 people clean drinking water. Brewgooder became the first social enterprise brand to gain a national listing with Asda in October 2016 just 3 months after launching their flagship style Clean Water Lager with a successful £60,000 crowdfund.
As a social entrepreneur he has been involved in the growth of Social Bite in Scotland, the high street sandwich chain which employs, trains and houses homeless and vulnerable people, along side his partner and has welcomed Hollywood stars such as George Clooney and Leonardo DiCaprio to his event, the Scottish Business Awards, raising over £3m.
He is a passionate believer in the power of ‘altruistic consumerism’ where everyday people can change the world for the better through everyday spending habits and is on a personal mission to bring social enterprise brands into the mainstream.
FuSIon Fest is brought to you by Social Innovation NI in association with the Building Change Trust, supported by the Department for Communitiesand managed by Innovate-NI. For more information check out the website www.fusionfest.co.uk and get your tickets here.
