WE’VE, a startup that connects consumers conscious design, enables anyone to design collaboratively with makers. Transparency is shared via artisans’ step by step “making” videos. Having recently launched its Crowdfunder campaign, WE’VE has quickly secured $65K of its $300K goal for the convertible note. Investors include from Private Equity entrepreneur Peter Thiel, LinkedIn Co-Founder Allen Blue, Crowdfunder CIO Rafe Furst and Yoxi Founder and CEO Sharon Chang.
Founder/ and CEO Eve Blossom began WE’VE as a way to combat human trafficking in Vietnam, where she was living and working as an architect. After the raw experience of overhearing two men discussing a six year old girl (please see video), Blossom knew that she had to make a difference. Human trafficking must stop. And Blossom is doing something about this noxious reality. As a social entrepreneur, author, speaker, Aspen Fellow, TED speaker, finalist INDEX: Award 2011, Blossom seeks to create a more stable and sustainable economic future for people around the world. The stories behind the projects, often inspired by local cultures, prove vital and life sustaining, providing education and jobs.
As of May, 78 artisan cooperatives creating over 4,000 exclusive product SKUs have joined WE’VE. For more financial information and campaign details, registered Crowdfunder investors may click here. The campaign closes 14 July.
