Lived Equity Live with Selin Yigitbasi-Ducker
We are very excited to be able to hear from an amazing inidividual who is inspired to make the world a better place! Selin is an award-winning social entrepreneur who is currently focused on increasing collaboration for social and environmental development through her impact start-up Goodsted. Goodsted is a place where everyone can share their skills to help social and environmental initiatives. It is also a solution for companies and organisations who want to create transparency for their volunteering programmes, and easily report on their engagement.
Born in Izmir, Turkey, and currently living in London, Selin is a problem-solver and an entrepreneur. She has a multi-disciplinary background in business, branding, and design & innovation, and she made the leap from working in brand consultancy in London to starting her impact-tech company, Goodsted, in 2018. She has been working hard with her team to develop their platform and grow their business since closing a seed round in 2020. Selin is an inspirational female leader who won the FBN NxG Lombard Odier Award in 2018, and carried on to win the CampdenFB Top Next-Generation Entrepreneur Award in 2019.
