Vendedy has an aggressive 5 year plan to target artisans across 100 cities around the world. To do this, we travel to countries across Latin America, the Middle East, Africa and Asia.
Pilot Project (Brazil- June 2014)
Vendedy completed its Brazil pilot to scout artisans in the market. Brazil has one of the largest street vending communities within the world (8.5 million). Our pilot was during the World Cup- a mega event that statistically increases the number of street vendors who aim to capitalize on the inflow of tourists. Brazil is also evolving to become a major player within the global economy and as such is an excellent market prospected for Vended International future efforts. The pilot ran from June 1st to June 30th 2014 in the slum favelas of Rio and villages of Bahia, Salvador. We incorporated 8 street artisans and will display their work for sale this fall.
