The Shift 100 has been put together to identify retail technology entrepreneurs who are bringing new ideas and products to market, creating integrated customer experiences and leading the move away from traditional ‘clicks and mortar’ e-commerce.
These entrepreneurs have been selected because they are dynamic, agile and shifting gears. They have brought an innovative product to market, cleverly harnessed a technology or process, led the revolutionary execution of a new technology and disrupted their markets.
James Brown and Fraser Doherty have been recognised within retail technology Shift 100 in association with KPMG Small Business Accounting.
James Brown and Fraser Doherty co-launched Beer 52 in 2013. James discovered a passion for craft beer after a father and son trip from Edinburgh to Faro. He decided that he had to help other beer lovers to discover great beers. Beer 52 started life as part of the Entrepreneurial Spark accelerator.
Beer 52 is based on a subscription model where they personally handpick and approve beers from more than 12,000 microbrewaries across the word. They now have thousands of subscribers, has shipped over three million bottles of beer, and hit turnover of £2.6m in 2015.
USP: A craft beer company sending you handpicked crates from around the world.
