Bio:
I give myself the permission to fail in pursuit of higher-purpose goals and social change making. I grew up watching and learning from my grandparents. They had started a business in their twenties, despite everyone (literally) telling them not to. The business turned out to be very successful, but the greatest lesson I learnt was in the way my granddad injected a social purpose into his leadership. He hired, trained, and supported people who had been turned away by his competitors for things they had done in the past (mainly prison sentences). He did this because he believed in them, and he believed in their reason for wanting to work hard (to support their families). This social-purpose hiring turned out to be one of my granddads greatest business decisions. The lesson I took from this - the lesson that has stuck with me the most throughout my life - is that business can and must be a force for positive social good, not just financial success for the owner(s). I have spent the time since I left school on a journey of self-directed learning, learning about the potential for business to be a positive force for social good. I am now ready to begin following in the footsteps of my grandparents, by creating a business that is financial sustainable, but more importantly, one that makes a difference in the world.

Story Cups manufacture disposable cups (for now) with a 3-pronged higher purpose: raising charity awareness in a non-intrusive way, fundraising in an identical manner, and massively reducing the size and environmental impact of the disposable cup market by introducing an innovative reusable system.

What if instead of throwing away food that you let go out of date, you could sell it before it does and reclaim some of your money? And what if most of that food was then redistributed to individuals who, without the lower priced food, might otherwise go without?
