With a shared passion for connecting via technology, Sean and Evan developed TextPride, an app that offers licensed emoji/emoticons for branded content. In 2014, they changed their company name to Swyft Media, and just one year after winning the Miller Lite Tap the Future grand prize, they were acquired for $27 million. Swyft Media partners with over 300 top brands and distributes content to more than 2 billion users across dozens of apps. Swyft Media brings users and the brands they love closer together. They were recently named to the Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list.

Ayla Bystrom-Williams and James Hill – Founders of HoneyMoon Brewery
Ayla and James were the 2016 Miller Lite Tap the Future winners. With a joint passion in hops, health and happiness, Ayla and James founded HoneyMoon Brewery. HoneyMoon Brewery produces an adult probiotic Kombucha tea with a touch of alcohol. Think of it as the marriage of a dry champagne with a Belgian Lambic. It is a refreshing probiotic and unlike anything available on the market. You’ll have the opportunity to sample their creation at the event.
