“If you’d told me at the moment when I moved to Los Angeles and I was having difficulty getting out of bed in the morning that two years from now this would be the situation, I would have laughed in your face. It just seemed crazy impossible,” said Bev founder and CEO Alix Peabody.
Bev is a mission-driven #breaktheglass beverage company that has risen in a real phoenix from the ashes story.
Alix got sick, really sick. Collapsing in agony, suffering an ovarian torsion, which is a serious medical condition where the ovary twists and cuts off the blood flow, Alix was in and out of surgeries that left her with a huge debt.
Bev grew out of a risky plan to pay off that debt. Now, Alix is on track to build a beverage company with a focus on empowering women.
