Kastytis Kemezys

Business Development

I am the managing director of CB. Since 2008 I have been building a product development lab – MyDrink Beverages. I am a restless entrepreneur. My experience of supporting hundreds of food start-ups from early stage helps me spot the main challenges that start-ups face and opportunities to overcome hurdles. I have exited MyDrink with a vision to create the ultimate platform for great food ideas to prosper.

Georgie Millward

Marketing and Sales Manager

My experience in marketing and my passion for cooking led me to Cinnamon Bridge and business development. Throughout my studies of marketing, the idea of helping to develop an emerging brand and building their marketing strategy from the ground up always intrigued me. The industry helped me to combine these two things, helping to develop both my skills and my passions. Today I am eager to support innovation by helping businesses and start-ups to communicate their brands in the best way to the most suitable markets and customers.

Indre Kulakauskaite

Marketing & Communication

I have been involved in the creative space all my professional life. I have collected a diverse set of skills in marketing and brand strategy, creative advertising, communications and operational excellence.

Today I’m eager to help food start-ups think like big businesses and support them on their way to scaling and fulfilling their dreams no matter how big or small.

I have a passion for great work, innovation and challenging projects as well as delicious superfoods!

Campbell Unsworth

Legal and Business strategy

I’m an experienced lawyer and enthusiastic entrepreneur.  Now leading the London office of startup specialist firm, General Standards Lawyers, I’ve worked with hundreds of start-up’ companies to get started and funded. I’ve previously worked at premier firms in Australia and London, together with a stint at Foster’s Group and the world’s largest listed wine company, Treasury Wine Estates.  I’m passionate about helping founders – as well as my food, beverage and hospitality (in no particular order).

Giulia Pieri

Brand Strategy and Identity

I’m a creative, open-minded designer and a tireless explorer, who enjoys overcoming challenges. I always try to step outside my comfort zone.
My multidisciplinary design thinking helps me to be creative, versatile and combine different skills, perspectives and expertise in every project I develop.
Thanks to a true love of food and a wide experience with graphic and branding design I am able to combine my passions and my skills.
My purpose is to help food start-ups to find the best strategy for their brand and stand out into the market with unique, convenient and attractive products.
