SustainaSeed’s first product was a crowdfunding platform dedicated to the SDGs. Furthermore, we listened to our users’ problems and released SDGs Jobs. While operating the beta versions of both products, we met many companies with great products and services that solve sustainable issues, including those from overseas. We found that crowdfunding, a B to B to C type of business, needed to be more suitable for many companies, mainly including B to B businesses. We decided to develop another platform that provides comprehensive services to increase sustainable awareness.
