“I became an OceanPath Fellow with the hope of bringing positive change to the world. Coady Institute offers a wealth of knowledge on how to appropriately operate within a community, which will be invaluable for my initiative”
My idea is to create a digital platform connecting silver artisans with buyers around the globe. The current value chain around jewelry includes numerous intermediaries between artisans and the final consumer. My goal is to bypass these intermediaries and reinvest the otherwise lost revenue into the community.
