THE STORY:

All donations to this project go directly to Agros International, who empowers entrepreneurs in developing nations.

It is through Agros's Insperation that we started Konaa Social Marketplace. Two years ago, on my way back from a micro-finance conference in Seattle, I had a thought: how can we use social media to expand distribution in developing nations to create self-sustainability for small business entrepreneurs?  It didn’t take me long to realize that self-sustainability is a universal principle, regardless of geolocation or demographic.  Let me introduce, Konaa Social Marketplace.

Simply, Konaa is a social discovery marketplace bridging the gap between communication, consumption and e-commerce.  Like “traditional” social media platforms, users have the power to communicate, follow and friend anyone.  However, Konaa believes social space should be as intimate and as private as a user chooses; space is not dominated by ads.

The next step was to organize a platform to harness the consumption power of a massive user base, that merges communication and e-commerce, BUT build a platform that effectively increases productivity.  Enter the social marketplace.  Now any music artist, author or artist has a place to sell their art in just a few clicks, a place for companies ranging from clothing to candle makers can increase distribution and simplify travel planning for vacation homeowners, activity and service providers by giving users a centralized discovery engine.  An environment that encourages small businesses to advertise through our unique FavAds, without breaking the bank.  Incorporate strong analytics, a real-time inventory management system that consolidates the need for expensive third party software management and bridges the gap between multi-system online/offline structures.

It has been a pleasure to share my vision with you. I look forward to hearing from you about how, together, we can change the world.
