Soda Founders & Startups

Soda has worked with some wonderful founders to grow their startups. Founders get a perfectly matched successful entrepreneur as their mentor, who gets their thinking right, builds their confidence and opens their networks to help them get to where they need to be faster. Here is a selection of founders and startups we've worked with. 

 

Simone Stewart

Founder

MumaBoost

MUMABOOST​

In 2016, Simone began the development of a unique health supplement for women.  With a background in Exercise Science and Marketing, and as a Mother of four children, she noticed a gap in the supplement market.  With a clear vision, Simone has spent the last two years on R&D and business planning. She is now working with Peter Lehrke on a commercial formula and an entry to market strategy. Find out more about Simone here.

Hop Revolution

HOP REVOLUTION

With global consumption of craft beer at record levels, discerning drinkers are not showing any signs of easing up. By 2025, global craft beer sales are projected to reach US$500 billion.

This is good news for New Zealand because our spray-free aroma hops are highly sought after by craft brewers for the unique flavours they impart in beer. The challenge is that New Zealand’s current production is nowhere near enough to meet the demand. Hop Revolution is changing that. Find out more here
