Five North Chocolate

Benjamin founded Five North Chocolate in March 2016 as a fair trade, sustainable social enterprise selling high quality confectionery. Five North has sold 5,000 chocolate pouches to date, with plans to expand operations in 2018. Five North Chocolate is a fair trade certified social enterprise that sells antioxidant-rich, vegan dark chocolate with superfoods in bite-sized pieces sold by the pouch. The chocolate is 72% cacao and all inclusions have additional health benefits, making the confectionary snack health conscious as well as socially conscious.

The Clothing Collective

Daniel founded The Clothing Collective in late 2018 as a way to both recycle unwanted clothes and help provide unemployed women from underprivileged areas with opportunities to generate income. The Clothing Collective has received 100,000 South African Rand worth of donated clothing in five months. Daniel, who was later joined by Natalie, was inspired to start the Collective after seeing the effective use of large clothing banks in public places across other countries.

Bean Voyage has worked with 112 women and more than 500 community members, with plans to impact more than 700 community members in the coming year.

FoodCloud

Iseult Ward co-founded FoodCloud, a platform that decreases food waste in Ireland by creating a network of businesses and charities to redistribute food fit for human consumption that would otherwise go to waste. By using the FoodCloud App – or website – a business can upload details of their surplus food and the time period for collection. A text message is sent automatically to charities in the community and the first charity to accept the offer collects it directly from the business.

Chipsafer

Victoria founded ChipSafer, which enables farmers to take fast action by alerting them about anomalies in the behaviour of their animals and prevents cattle theft. They have five full-time employees now and have earned several grants and investments due to the success of their application process. ChipSafer will be going to market this year.
