We were sent this 5 minute video interview by Kochie’s Business Builders and enjoyed (electronically) catching up with Daniel Flynn and his team at ThankYou to see how the social enterprise is growing.
Thankyou Group started in Australia by selling bottled drinking water which contributed sales to providing drinking water in impoverished countries. As they grew, they were told by their distributors that they’re a bottled water company and should stay that way. Defying their distributors, Thankyou Group pushed forward with a body-care range and food/snacks range and now their bottled water counts for only a third of their sales.
Well done to the team and for continuously growing as social entrepreneurs – or as we like to call them, Ethipreneurs® – As Dan Flynn says: “Be willing to change the way things have always been done before”.
