Amid the pressing global issues of climate change and food insecurity, the innovative efforts of Scholars of Sustenance and Buyamia are making a remarkable difference.

A Fabulous Concept: Scholars of Sustenance's Investment in Buyamia

Bo H. Holmgreen, the Founder of Scholars of Sustenance - the premier Food Rescue non-profit across South-East Asia, has invested in Buyamia, recognizing its immense potential. His organization has been instrumental in rescuing surplus food from landfills and combating the emission of methane gases across the Philippines, Thailand, and Indonesia. In just six years, Scholars of Sustenance has provided 25 million meals to those in need, demonstrating its profound commitment to environmental and social sustainability.

Holmgreen, a recipient of the Entrepreneur of the Year award in North Carolina, is passionate about nurturing young, innovative entrepreneurs in Indonesia. His investment in Buyamia is a testament to his commitment to sustainable solutions.

Holmgreen noted, "Buyamia, as a business-to-business sourcing platform, simplifies international commerce for businesses by handling product sourcing, quality control, contracts, shipping, and taxes. This e-commerce model, akin to Alibaba, serves as a fantastic opportunity for positive impact in Indonesia, the world's fourth most populous country."

Revolutionizing Sustainable B2B Commerce: Buyamia

Wayne A. Thompson, the CEO, and founder of Buyamia, has harnessed this opportunity by creating Indonesia's premier B2B e-commerce marketplace dedicated to sustainability. With over 1,000 curated suppliers and more than 30,000 products, Buyamia facilitates connections between artisans, small to medium suppliers, manufacturers, and global business buyers. This platform actively promotes sustainable production and environmentally-friendly products through its green Software as a Service (SaaS) business model.

"Buyamia elevates sustainability from mere rhetoric to tangible action. Our partnerships with Scholars of Sustenance and other non-profits align with our shared vision for a better world. By capitalizing on international value differentials, we can provide seed capital and income to smaller entrepreneurs," says Thompson.
