Co-Founders, Sourced Market
Dan O'Neill at 27, he co-founded Sabio, a leading UK systems integrator, making the Virgin Fast Track 100 as one of the top 30 fastest growing businesses in the UK. He moved into music management and was the pioneering architect of the global 360 partnership deal between Bacardi and Groove Armada. He has also saved, restructured, built and sold ‘Lovebox' East London’s award-winning cultural music safari. He also co-founded the food retail concept Sourced Market in 2009.
Ben O'Brien, whilst living on Borough Market, Ben got to know many of the traders over the years. They partnered and went 'on tour' to a music festival. Ben and Dan met and took Sourced Market to Lovebox, Secret Garden Party and the Big Chill. The inspiration for the indoor market arm of Sourced Market came from living in Hackney with only a Tesco Metro nearby. Ben wanted to make carefully sourced produce accessible through a convenient location and opening hours that suited the typical Londoner.
