The Entrepreneurs - Seedlip: 

Ben Branson spent a decade working for creative agencies, helping other people to build their brands. But in 2014 he decided to put his skills to the test on his own project. That project was Seedlip, a non-alcoholic spirit born out of Branson’s passion for natural botanicals and hobby distilling. Seedlip has since become a huge success and is stocked in high-end London retailers and served in bars and restaurants across the globe. Branson explains how his experience designing toothpaste tubes helped him build the brand and reveals why he’s confident the market for non-alcoholic drinks is only just getting started.

The Entrepreneurs - Eureka 113: Yatay : 

When Umberto De Marco went looking for a pair of sustainable trainers and returned empty-handed, he made a decision: he would create the world’s first luxury sustainable sneaker brand. Little more than 50 years ago his father Enrico invented an eco-friendly synthetic-leather material. Coronet Group, the company that spun out of that invention, is today a global manufacturer that supplies fashion labels such as Louis Vuitton and Armani. Having put Coronet’s expertise to use, De Marco has launched a line of trainers made entirely in Italy from high-quality vegan leather.
