Brand Builder is a day of talks for people launching and growing independent spirits brands.

Created by Distill Ventures – the world’s first accelerator for spirits brands – it will feature experts and successful entrepreneurs from across the industry.

The sessions will include contributions from seasoned professionals from all sectors of the industry, alongside the Distill Ventures team. If you’re looking for insight into creating and growing a successful consumer brand in the increasingly crowded US spirits market – this day is for you.

Winning the Pitch

Hear three entrepreneurs pitch live to a panel of investors – from within and outside of the drinks industry – and get feedback on their proposition and their pitches. The Distill Ventures team will then talk about the important elements of successfully securing investment.

This session will reveal what investors are looking for, and how to structure a pitch that can win you the smartest money around.
