With veganism gaining popularity worldwide, entrepreneur Emma Osborne decided to launch Citizen Kind, an all-vegan staffing agency that helps vegans find work opportunities. Osborne was frustrated she had to work with businesses that did not share her values and created Citizen Kind to bridge the gap to connect like-minded individuals.
“Being vegan is still considered an extreme choice even now, and so I wanted to help normalize a compassionate lifestyle by opening up opportunities in sustainable companies to those consciously reducing their impact on the planet,” Osborne said. The company works with e-commerce firms, nonprofits, investment firms, tech startups, and vegan food brands across the United Kingdom. Citizen Kind's next steps are to being operating in Asia, the United States, and Europe by 2020.
