When people think of social impact, they think of nonprofits. But you can be a for-profit business that pays it forward. Just ask Kelly Breakstone Roth. As the Co-Founder of The Nopo, she’s building a business that delivers handmade wares from around the world to your door—and supports artisans in the process. I’m so excited to chat with Kelly about how she launched a global e-commerce business in the midst of a pandemic that stressed supply chains around the world (!). We’re going to dive into how she identifies the artisans she works with, what it really takes to set and maintain ethical, fair-trade standards, and why a for-profit business model was right for The Nopo. So, let’s get into it. Welcome to WorkParty, Kelly!
