Beer is the 3rd most consumed liquid in the world. The UK has over 2000 breweries and the market is estimated at approximately £10B. Unlike cans and bottles, which are single use containers, kegs are reusable containers that can last for over 25 years. They're the most sustainable packaging to deliver beer
Managing kegs is challenging. Lack of transparency into the containers creates excess waste and logistical issues for the industry. Our IoT device, Kegtracker, is a first-to-market product that measures volume, location, temperature and motion of each keg in real time. Our AI-driven platform, BeverEDGE, uses data collected from the device to empower breweries, distributors and retailers alike with actionable insights for a more efficient and sustainable supply chain
Thanks to our 2020 Crowdcube and angel investors, we brought our idea from proof of concept to a design that's ready for manufacturing. We have built a business intelligence platform, grew our team, and secured pilot partners across the globe, notably, Brewdog, the UK's fastest growing alternative beer brand
This summer we're back for a Seed B round. Funds will purchase Kegtracker inventory to service clients and accelerate our marketing efforts across Europe and North America
With your support, we can help the breweries and hospitality industry get back on their feet, at a time when it really counts.
We are motivated by the power of IoT and its ability to enable a zero-waste supply chain. A small operational improvement can reap large benefits to our entire ecosystem
