About Goodsted

At Goodsted, we’re on an ambitious journey to become the world’s most engaging, accessible and diverse platform to collaborate on social and environmental development in the next 3 years. This means supporting thousands of non-profits and impact startups to progress with their goals, and enabling thousands of individuals to share their time and skills for good. We have an open community platform for anyone to easily participate, and we use this same platform as a software solution to make it easy for companies to not only engage their employees, but also their customers, suppliers and partners to bring all stakeholders together in progressing social and environmental goals.

We’re early in our journey, but we have already made significant progress. Over the past year, we launched and beta-tested our platform, secured our first clients, built partnerships, received support from accelerators and advisors, and secured some early investment. We’re continuing to refine our platform, and are preparing to officially launch out-of-beta by mid-December 2021, as well as raising our second round of investment.

2022 is going to be the year of growth, as we launch in Manchester and continue to grow across Greater London and other UK cities. At this critical stage, we need to build a robust growth funnel to accelerate lead generation, and nurture leads to bring them closer to becoming our clients in order to have faster sales cycles. This will ensure we can build a sustainable platform, and create the largest positive impact possible.
