Founder and Creative Director at Maakola

To ensure that we make significant strides towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals by 2030, companies – both large and small – need to fundamentally and holistically transform the way they do business through modern financing tools (i.e. blockchain) and strategic business model decisions.

This session will particularly help aspiring and current entrepreneurs learn about unique and strategic approaches in innovating their organization’s business models to be more sustainable, ethical and inclusive.

The discussion seeks to bring together founders of up-and-coming start-ups that demonstrate a commitment to concious business, and intend to share what they have learned on their journey so far. Introduced by the founders themselves, we will be sharing case studies of organizations that demonstrate how these tools and techniques can be implemented for amplified social impact within organizations.

  • Maakola is a made-to-order sustainable and ethical fashion brand with a cosmopolitan DNA. Maakola believes that women can look beautiful, while wearing values they believe in – with no compromise.
  • Genuine Way is a tech service provider specializing in the development and distribution of blockchain integrated solutions for manufacturers, consumer goods in the food, fashion, cosmetic and pharma industries.
