“When we bump into those barriers or we have those moments of self-doubt, we just keep pushing forward. I think tenacity is critical in this case and just not taking no for an answer until you can find a new solution."
-Britt Dougherty, Co-Founder of heywell
heywell is a line of delicious function-forward sparkling waters with flavors like Blackberry Ginger and Sparkling Lime made with adaptogens, antioxidants, and organic caffeine to help you meet the demands of modern life.
In this podcast episode, we speak with Britt Dougherty, Co-Founder of heywell, about making wellness simpler & more accessible for everyone, their new flavor that was an award finalist for the Best New Beverage of 2022 at Expo West, and how she and Co-Founder Ashley Selman went rogue to start their company.
Previously, Britt and Ashley held Senior Vice President positions at MillerCoors.
They found that wellness solutions often prioritized function over flavor, and wanted to make something that was good for them, delicious, and inclusive. heywell is proud to be a certified women-owned business, and as part of their mission, they donate 1% of sales to nonprofits advocating inclusion.
