We’ve all been affected by everything 2020 has thrown at us, though not everyone has been so candid about how their business was affected and the sheer tenacity it takes to pivot. We sit down with Bryan DeHaven, Founder of Alpine Hemp Company to discuss how his hemp apparel company has overcome adversity during the pandemic. Bryan is transparent about his journey and the hard work that got him to today. Despite all of this year’s turmoil Bryan remains rather optimistic about the future.
We also discuss his background in streetwear and hemp clothing as well as the current downfalls with hemp textiles in the US. Stay with us through the end where we unexpectedly give Bryan the 2020 Entrepreneur of the Year Award as he gives a moment of gratitude to all the businesses that have helped him this year.
