#FacesofFastStart “Hi, I’m Tyler Steeves, the founder of Longevity Ventures, the company behind That Dam Tea and Treewell Limited. We’re creating a series of lifestyle brands built around natural beverages with ingredients that fulfill a purpose in your life.
Our functional iced tea product That Dam Tea is made with Damiana, which is a superfood found in the mountains of Central and South America that is often used to decrease stress/anxiety and improve mood. We import and extract this mighty herb creating a powerful infusion that’s blended into our subtle and aromatic iced tea.
TreeWell is a non-alcoholic champagne made from maple sap that goes well with good company and celebrations. Moving forward into the next few months we are excited about two new product launches which we look forward to unveiling when the time comes.
Building a company is full of challenges but one that is ever present for me is learning how to occasionally be patient, while still pushing as hard as possible for speed. With the help of FastStart Peterborough, I've been able to get exposure in the Peterborough community, which has been a huge asset. Recently receiving support from Community Futures Peterborough and their EODP program, Ontario Centres of Excellence and Starter Company Plus through Peterborough & the Kawarthas Economic Development, as well as being written about in the Peterborough Examiner, Peterborough This Week and appearing on CHEX News.
Outside of work, I love spending time with my amazing 16 month old daughter Juniper and my awesome wife Jasmine. I bake artisanal Sourdough bread, built a mobile Sauna in my backyard and play a lot of Ultimate. From time to time I’ll make it out rock climbing or snowboarding and love getting out into nature whenever possible." - Tyler Steeves of Longevity Ventures.
