Founded in the dorm room of Sam Franklin, Greenvelope was introduced to the world as a clean, focused, and streamlined solution for businesses and nonprofits to connect with their supporters, donors, and customers. Their suite offers tools to help maximize patronage, event attendance, and donations while also managing all RSVPs, tickets, item sales, and registrations in one system.
“The real inspiration for our new ticketing and event management features came from customer feedback. The other event management and invitation tools available on the market simply were not meeting the needs of most company event planners and nonprofits,” says Franklin.
According to Franklin’s early-market research, these companies needed something that was simple enough for anybody in the company to use with minimal training. Not to mention this new solution needed to be affordable.
“It became clear very quickly that this was something that would make our customers’ lives easier and offer immense value to them,” says Franklin.
Initially Greenvelope was a weddings-only product, but as they gained more notoriety Franklin expanded the platform into digital correspondence and event marketing. What’s remained unchanged, however, is Greenvelope’s mission to giving back to local and global communities.
Not only does the Greenvelope team employ these ideals in their daily practices and company culture, but they also have forged partnerships with Mountains to Sound and 1% for the Planet.
“The team has nearly tripled in just the past few months. It seems like every other day I am making another presentation about a new feature or site improvement, and now we are launching this fantastic new solution that our current clients,” says Franklin. “Every single member of our team really embraces our value of ‘Never Stop Improving’ and I truly believe that comes through in everything that we do.”
