10am: Welcome to StartUp 2022 Manchester

10.30am: How we grew a successful brand from just £600 – Rimi and Manav Thapar, founders of LoveRaw

Husband-and-wife team Rimi and Manav Thapar founded LoveRaw in 2013 with a budget of just £600, with the mantra 'chocolate first, vegan second'. LoveRaw has since disrupted the vegan confectionery market launching the world’s first vegan milk chocolate Cre&m Wafer Bar which is currently sold in major supermarkets and retail chains across 20 different countries worldwide including Asda, Waitrose, Holland & Barrett, Whole Foods UK and eatloveraw.com.

LoveRaw is now the fastest growing vegan chocolate impulse brand in the UK. The brand has over 70k followers on Instagram and with clear plans to drive accelerated growth, LoveRaw is on track to achieve an impressive +295% growth during a 12-month period. Rimi and Manav will share their impressive story and top tips for growing a successful brand with limited budget.

2pm: From an idea to producing a million bottles of gin a year – Seb Heeley and Jen Wiggins, founders of Manchester Gin and Three Little Words

Seb and Jen met and bonded over their mutual love of gin. Two years later, ready to open their own bar, Jen and Seb discovered small-batch gin distillation which ignited the spark that is now Manchester Gin. From their dining room, Seb and Jen started distilling gin 60 litres at a time. Hoping to make 800 bottles a year, they distilled through the night and bottled, labelled and sold by day. They went on to make 25,000 bottles from their dining room, which won a Gold at the Spirit Masters for micro-distillery.

Now, just three years later, the Spirit of Manchester Distillery is a state-of-the-art distillery capable of producing a million bottles a year. Seb and Jen will share their story of starting and growing a business as a couple and offer tips for turning your idea into a reality.
