Veganzone, a community-based platform to bring together vegans and vegetarians, received its first investment with valuation of $3 million. With the investment from the Focus Global Project, an Istanbul investment firm, VEGANZONE will focus on furthering the development of software technologies and growth in the 40 countries where they have users.
Veganzone is a platform where plant-based users can share their common values, socialise through the activities they create, and communicate with other members. Key features include facilitating, creating and sharing content, meeting and chatting with other vegans and vegetarians, creating online or in-person events, finding the latest news and discovering trends.
The app is available on both App store and Play Store.
“We are investing in Veganzone to help it grow and expand its global reach to support the many benefits of the platform to vegans and vegetarians,” said Focus Global Project Managing Partner Kerem Kapancı.
“We support the company’s mission to build a community for people around the world who have adopted this lifestyle.”
The community platform was founded in New York in February 2021 by Selin Tuyen, Murat Aksu, and Ogous Chan Ali. In March, Veganzone was selected as the best product of the day, best product of the week and third best product of the month, respectively, by Product Hunt, a tech products listing platform.
