Dear Vendedy Stakeholder,
Thank you for a phenomenal 5 years.
In 2014 when I launched Vendedy, it was just an idea sketched out from my experiences as a street vendor alongside my family.
I never would imagine that a whole movement on understanding emerging market economies would kick off from my work digitizing street markets around the world.
At its, peak, Vendedy listed 98,000 street markets across 82 countries. As our database grew, so did the recognition.
Vendedy has been featured in almost every media network, received countless recognition awards and is now an official business case study for business students around the world.
Vendedy as a platform is very much needed as the street market economy is set to triple in size over the next few years and more travelers are looking for more authentic products and experiences.
So this is not the end of Vendedy, just a new beginning.
See you on the other side of history.
Christine Souffrant Ntim
