Thirsty for startup stories and entrepreneurial insight?

The 15th episode of our monthly Business Inspires podcast features Mark Tinus of Revolution Experiment.

Revolution Experiment is the company behind Karate Cowboy, a line of sake and grain alcohol blends with a range of flavors, and Simple Times all natural cocktail mixers.

Mark talks with us about building networks, predicting consumer tastes, and what he learned with global companies.

Mark discusses topics including:

  • Starting off with a career in big beer.
  • Travelling the world working in marketing strategy and consulting.
  • Learning from markets outside of the US.
  • Coming back home to Columbus after years away.
  • Working on the same ideas he had seen shot down in larger companies’ innovation departments.
  • Studying acculturation to predict and embrace consumer trends.
