Entrepreneurs' Workshop with Anthony Newman (1991)

6:00pm – Online, via Zoom

Join us for May's Entrepreneurs' Workshop with Anthony Newman (1991). Anthony is the founder of ape2o, a sustainable water brand. Anthony will talk about his personal journey with ape2o – sharing lessons on coming up with an idea, researching it, building a team, preparing for fund-raising, launching, gaining traction and staying motivated all the way through that journey. Hopefully some lessons and tips that might help budding founders on their journeys. 

About the speaker

Anthony Newman started out working 10 years in the music and media industries after Cambridge, then got involved in the drinks industry – starting in functional soft drinks in UK in 2005, then building a microbrewery in Queensland Australia which ran for 7 years. Then since 2015 he has been developing the sustainable water brand ape2o which launched in 2019. It was inspired by the damage done to marine fauna by ocean plastics. ape2o has been gaining traction ever since, providing a circular alternative on-the-go to single use plastic water bottles.
