Founded in 2009 by both Maxandra Short and Amy Walker, KORA Designs is another social business that has closed down in recent months, more specifically, on January 1 of this year. Although quite a different social enterprise, Cycle Chalao, located in Mumbai, India, lacked government suport in order to continue its bicycle sharing scheme in urban areas.

Since is about raising awareness about hybrid organizations -- its success, failures, beginnings and ends -- KORA is learning took. The jewelry accessories, which were made with found materials that would otherwise be thrown away, were created by artisans in Ghana, Kenya and Rwanda and supported sustainable business development.
