Below is our interview with Selin Tuyen and Murat Aksu, Co-Founders of Veganzone:
Q: Could you provide our readers with a brief introduction to your company?
A: Veganzone is social media platform developed to be a “super app” to enable people who adopt a vegan – vegetarian lifestyle to create a community. It was founded in February 2021 by Murat Aksu, Selin Tuyen, and Oguos Chan Ali.
Q: Any highlights on your recent announcement?
A: Veganzone received its first investment with a valuation of 3 million from Focus Global Project, an Istanbul-based investment firm. The funding will allow Veganzone to focus on furthering the development of software technologies and grow its user base.
Q: Can you give us more insights into your offering?
A: Veganzone is a new community-based mobile application for vegans and vegetarians where people who enjoy a plant-based lifestyle can share their common values, socialize through events they create, engage in discussions on any subject, and meet new people through the “discover people” feature.
Q: What can we expect from your company in the next 6 months? What are your plans?
A: We are working to make Veganzone available in 101 languages to engage with users around the world. We will continue to expand the capabilities and features with the goal of three million users.
Q: What is the best thing about your company that people might not know about?
A: We know that one of the main reasons people give up a vegan lifestyle is they often aren’t sure how to do it alone. We created Veganzone as a free app to make sure that anyone interested in a vegan lifestyle has a community where they feel at home, can ask questions, learn easily, and share their experience.
