Suba: Nyaanum is a digital content company focused on exploration, culture, and virtual travel. What makes Nyaanum unique is that our content is created and curated by the people who live in the places we visit—as opposed to professional photographers or foreign travelers. We create the space for communities to tell their own stories about their homes—what makes this place special to them—but also stories that highlight what is shared across cultures. There is a strong focus on empowering less heard, more marginalized voices, bringing a diversity of perspective and experience. We want to become the premier company to experience the world virtually in an inclusive and respectful way by and for everyone on the planet.
Sara: BUTA Art & Sweets is a platform aimed at reducing unemployment among women with special needs through the sales of handmade vegan sweets, prepared by them, to individuals and companies. There are more than 290,000 women with special needs in Azerbaijan, and 95% of them are unemployed. Buta Art & Sweets addresses social exclusion by empowering these women through training programs that provide them with an additional income.
Shazeeb: We are a ‘globally connected’ locally rooted ecosystem in Bangladesh that is driven by social and environmental consciousness. We believe in a world where socially and environmentally conscious entrepreneurs are empowered and equipped to combat the challenges of creating a world of three zeros: zero net carbon emission, zero wealth concentration for ending poverty, and zero unemployment by unleashing entrepreneurship in all. We invest in socially and environmentally conscious entrepreneurs who are solving crucial issues of our times benefitting the underserved communities. I have a passion for social change and I am super happy to try and do something by harnessing the power of social business.
