Welcome to Beanstalk.ph

It was a little over four months ago when I first wrote about Beanstalk.ph. At the time, I described them as a marketplace that was out to serve the people who are trying to make a living out of helping.

 

Last Saturday, May 25, they had a launch at Craft Coffee Workshop, and I was glad to find that what I said still holds true.

 

 

They launched a new look, introduced themselves, and introduced some of their partners. It was still the same story I had heard  before – project for school turned into a vocation, a vocation turned into a social enterprise – but this time, there was a little more gravity behind the words. The 4 months of experience they’ve had to back it up seems to have been 4 months of nothing but hard work 🙂

This was the first thing to see upon entering Craft last Saturday, featuring Beanstalk’s partners Artwine, Denim Dimension, and Habi Footwear.

It was a simple enough affair, straightforward and very telling. A mark of how community-minded Beanstalk is is that a large part of program that Saturday morning was for “networking.” After the folks from Habi Footwear and Leyende gave a short talk about their enterprises (which are both amazing stories by the way – for future posts and reviews :D), the event was basically a free-for-all. Adriann and his partners encouraged us to talk amongst ourselves and build connections. Lucky for me, I got to talk to JC Soriano from Magis Solutions – just when I needed a web developer!

I know they’re always looking for partners so if you’re interested, contact them at beanstalkphilippines@gmail.com.

Just like four months ago, I’m still excited for this brand and for sure, they’re not gonna disappoint. 🙂
