Sarah Bryden-Brown, our Founder & CEO, saw a gap between makers & tastemakers. And then she found a way to connect the dots... GREAT.LY.
"Tastemakers are a powerful force online, motivating the purchasing habits of millions of people worldwide daily, yet no one has made them central to an online shopping site where makers go to sell their fabulous products. GREAT.LY is an ecommerce platform that will leverage the audiences of tastemakers to drive sales for the maker economy. It is a simple WIN-WIN situation." ~ SARAH BRYDEN-BROWN, FOUNDER/CEO
