Over 1 billion workers around the world are using their artisanal skills to create a better future by selling their crafts. Despite their skills many of these artisans still live off less than $10 a day. In an attempt to expand their customer base they turn to middle men to sell their wares further afield, yet they are often left with just 5-10% of the proceeds after the middleman takes a cut. Discovered connects artisans with customers around the world letting them sell their wares to more customers at higher prices.
Conscious consumers around the world use their purchasing power to create a positive impact and yet there thousands of artisans whose products they cannot reach. Discovered brings these two groups together via a transparent online marketplace in which positive impact is created with each purchase.
