Quintin and Angela Lake met on a factory floor in 2003. An article they had read in National Geographic sparked a conversation about Modern Slavery.
But it wasn’t until 2011, on a trip around Asia, that the idea for FiftyEight began to grow. They were struck by the positive impact a good business model can bring to people and communities. Workplaces that improve the quality of life for everyone connected to them – from customers, to staff, to their supply chain.
On their return to the UK, they set to work, gaining the knowledge and experience necessary to work with companies internationally.
They launched FiftyEight in 2014.
The name FiftyEight comes from a chapter in the Old Testament book of Isaiah which challenges us to ensure our workplaces and communities are free from exploitation and injustice.
