Details of this month’s speaker…

QWERTY Beer Box is a recent Gloucestershire based startup founded by two university students, Quinn and Niki. QWERTY Beer Box offers regionally focused independent craft beer experiences. The business focuses on championing local produce and includes the curation of beer discovery hampers, such as their ‘Best of the Cotswolds’ selection, which champions local independent breweries such as Gloucester, Stroud, and Clevell & Hind Brewery, and the sale of them nationally. They have sold tens of thousands of craft beers to date and have built a strong network of breweries across the South West.

Quinn and Niki will be sharing their valuable experience of starting their digital business within a traditional industry. They will also share their tips on the power of data, feedback and review collection to help to grow your business, and will tell you all about their new product development process.
