Social Impact Spotlight!
Using our platform to promote 'good', we will include a "Social Impact Spotlight" in each of our monthly newsletters.
This month, we highlight an amazing company, Aavalor Green Energy! Led by the audacious, Aryan Aviraj, Aavalor Green Energy is a sustainability organization that is rethinking the way we use our Earth's natural resources.
Using nanotechnology, Aavalor is designing a water filtration system that saves millions of liters of water per year, as well as a hydrogen green energy production system.
NEW on the Website!
We've made some major adjustments to the website!
First and foremost, we made some BIG changes to our Services page. On this page you may find an updated list of our Service Offerings, an updated pricing model, and updated examples of our work!
How about them apples?
Next, we added a section under our 'Partners' field, that highlights our Social Impact Spotlight! We feel that these Social Entrepreneurs deserve their own section on our website, to highlight the amazing work that they do.
Thank you 🙏
Our goal is to serve you, so that you may serve others!
