Investor Coffee Morning with ZX Ventures
March 8, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am GMT
Join us for an informal chat over coffee and cake where we will be welcoming ZX Ventures.
ZX is the VC arm of Anheuser-Busch InBev, the famous company behind the likes of Budweiser, Corona and Stella Artois, and is on a mission to find the future of the drinks industry – whether that be a product, app, pub, e-commerce site, or autonomous delivery vehicle.
The company invests in and mentors a range of industry startups across the world – from Canada to Korea – and works with the likes of TechStars to locate and accelerate some of the best ideas, providing investment, resources and mentoring programmes to the finalists. In terms of the UK, ZX acquired Camden Town Brewery in 2016, and supports brewer pubs such as the Goose Island vintage ale bar in Balham.
It doesn’t just look at beer too – ZX currently has stakes in tea-based drinks, wine, snacks, event apps, waste re-cycling startups, and even brewery cleaning machines.
It also has a substantial branch of e-commerce, where the company is driving investment and support into innovative apps and websites that have the potential to change the way consumers buy. As well as the flagship Budweiser Shop, the firm is backing the likes of UK ‘beer-hunting’ site BeerHawk, and world-renowned drinks community RateBeer.
This session will run as a roundtable. Feel free to reach out to our Programme Manager at email@example.com for the access code.
