Brendan Devoy | Auckland, NZ

I’m a 23 year old marketing graduate from Auckland, New Zealand.
Misfit has been a project that has evolved from my humble beginnings of brewing some questionable homebrew while at University. Graduating in late 2015, I developed the company in the first half of 2016, before getting a corporate job at New Zealand’s largest brewery. 18 months later, I decided to leave this job, jumping into Misfit Brewing Co. full time, working to release our first range of beers in late 2018.

Sam Wells | Melbourne, AUS

I am a passionate, vibrant and energetic soul that has spent the last 2-3 years travelling on and off around the world. I have covered a lot of ground (over 30 countries) and experienced a variety of cultures. I am a keen learner and love to help out wherever I can. I am a strong believer in communication and the community that we create as individuals and have a lot of dreams for myself and where the planet is heading.

Aqeel Camal | Canberra, AUS

I’m a 17 year-old designer, problem solver and community builder. I’ve got a tendency to be extremely optimistic about people and the world we live in. I truly believe that everyone has value to add in this world, but the systems of education currently in place don’t help us realise that potential. There are so many issues out there to be solved, and so many people with great ideas who want to make a difference but are not empowered to act on them. I think that if we were able to help young people around the world reach their potential, we’d have generations growing up who interact mostly through kindness, empathy and compassion, while being empowered with the skills to make the world a better place. The thought of such a world is what drives me.

Noah Wark – For The Greater | NSW, AUS

The Waterboy NZ | Hamilton, NZ

The Waterboy works to break down barriers to give New Zealanders an opportunity to participate in sport.
We identify those groups and individuals who want to do sport but are unable for some reason, and create initiatives to break down barriers and give them those opportunities. We then film the initiatives to capture the story and give businesses an opportunity to partner with us as a means of showing their values.
