Yokel

Celebrate Originality and Sustainability in Business

There’s nothing more inspiring than the innovative spirit of small business and Yokel aims to highlight local businesses doing amazing things that are worth checking out and being a part of.

What started out as an IYBI internal project on ‘who’s doing what in the local area’ soon turned into a branded obsession for the whole If You Build It team.

We’re now calling on all businesses that do something cool, different, sustainable and generally make the world a better place through their existence. If this sounds like your business then we’d love to hear from you. In the meantime please look through and read some of our most recent finds below.
