We believe the way to transform society is through supporting social entrepreneurs rather than donating funds or food for short-term projects. They are people that want to pull themselves out of poverty and wish to help their community do so too. They aim to create sustainable solutions that will last in the long run. A social entrepreneur that counts with the right support system turns into solid B-Corps and becomes agents of transformation for global sustainable development.
We are already a developed platform that connects social en environmental entrepreneur from our country with conscious customers and enterprises. Last year we opened a B2B line where we have clients such as Change.org, Grupo Global Plenna Cannabis, and Grupos Argos. This has been the biggest achievement because we found a way to bootstrap and represent important sales to our entrepreneurs. Before, during our ideation process, we were selected by the Council of International Education of EEUU to represent Colombia at the Civic Leadership Summit 2018 at American University at Washington. Events that allow us to land the project. Early 2019 with our first sales, we earned one of the highest scholarships at Trepcamp (Accelerator Entrepreneur Simulator) at New York University. An event that allows us to connect to top entrepreneurs worldwide. In 2020 we made an acceleration process with Impact Hub Medellin that allow us to organize legal and management areas from the project. Besides we were awarded in the top 10 of national social ventures by the Yunus Environment Hub in our country.
