THE CO-FOUNDERS' STORY

27-DSC_7091-Modifier.jpg

Laure & Yoon-Joo were both working for over 7 years in the impact field. When they met in 2019 in Paris, France, it turned out they made the same observation. 

 

  • On the one hand, there were many smart people willing to launch their impact-driven initiative. But they often lack the right idea/model to get started, thus ending up reinventing the wheel. 

  • On the other hand, there are many great social enterprises looking to scale their solution and impact and are looking for people to replicate their solutions elsewhere.

They decided to bridge the gap and connect these two stakeholders! And Snowball Effect was born :)
