Elevyn seeks to empower marginalized communities by enabling them to sell their crafts via online stores. Additionally, it’s also a platform for charities and NGO’s to raise funds and awareness on their campaigns.
How does it work?
Everytime an item is sold, 5% get channeled automatically to a Cause that the Shop supports. This ensures that the business benefits not only the seller, but to the local community as a whole. Elevyn itself takes 5% for operational funds, with the rest going back to the seller.
Who are we?
My name is Mike Tee, and together with Devan Singaram, we received a grant from the MDEC Pre-seed Fund Programme to develop the project. The project is also a finalist in the recent Youth Social Entrepreneurship Initiative (YSEI 2008)
