The new drink on the block: Ruby
The story of a drink inspired by vacation.
Welcome back and welcome to the very first episode of the intern.club podcast. Where we talk to founders at buzz-worthy startups about what they’ve been up to and, of course, interns and full-time roles they’re looking to bring on. You can find the intern.club podcast everywhere you find your favorite podcasts - Apple Podcasts, Spotify - you know, the important ones. As summer (AKA, internship season) approaches, watch this space. Because we’ll be chatting with plenty of startups looking to bring more rockstars onto their teams, like yourself.
Without further ado, meet Ruby, the new drink on the block. Ruby is a 0 calorie, 0 sugar hibiscus water that tastes a bit like dried cherries - a little tart, a little sweet - but delicious and refreshing. If there’s one other person you should meet, it’s Noah Wunsch, Ruby’s founder.
Before founding Ruby, Noah worked at Sotheby’s as their Global Head of eCommerce. His roots are in the editorial side of media and he eventually found himself on the business development side of a few early-stage companies. Needless to say, Noah has seen and worked at companies of all sizes. On a vacation out west, he discovered hibiscus water and became obsessed. Once he got home, he couldn’t help but begin to make it himself. Sure enough, his friends got a hold of it and asked “Noah, where can I get more of this?” And thus, Ruby was born.
Ruby’s had quite the journey - from raising with world-class investors - to soon launching in Whole Foods in March. The secret to their success, according to Noah, comes down to passion. If you couldn’t tell by their domain name (ruby.fun), fun is built into their brand.
Building a business is hard work. And the only way to survive the tough times is to have fun with it. Be in love with what you’re doing. Find the magic in the mundane. Noah is looking for interns and full-time roles to do exactly that.
As Ruby enters growth stage, Noah is looking to bring on passionate people who are ready to get their hands dirty. They need people who are in love with the culture and can tap into it. Ruby was built for the masses, they just need the right people to help them get there. If this sounds like you - drop a DM to Ruby on their socials, @rubyforfun.
