Lead With Your Mission
Stephen Rapoport is a serial entrepreneur – having previously founded crashpadder.com (which was sold to Airbnb). Pact Coffee, a London-based startup aiming to revolutionise the coffee industry, was founded in 2012.
Pact Coffee makes it easy to access fresh roasted coffee. Its coffee is shipped within 7 days of roasting – and is ground at the last moment – to make it easier to drink fresh coffee everyday. Through its Direct Trade relationships with farmers, it pays a higher price than Fairtrade for better quality coffee, and encourages the farmers it works with to invest in coffee quality and its people.
Pact Coffee recently hit headlines after cancelling a crowdfunding campaign after raising £190,000 of a £1m target, but counts Robin Klein and MMC Ventures among its backers. It now aims to become a global brand and grow quickly, and will be financing again later in 2016.
