The duo are currently benefiting from the start-up development programme called Beyond the Finish Line which was created to run alongside Glasgow 2014. It aims to “mobilise young people (16-30) in Glasgow to regenerate their local areas by setting up social enterprises”. This venture provides initial funding, free workspace, 1 year of support and a personal mentor.
Due to the nature of Treemendus it is naturally an environmentally friendly business by gathering and reusing items that would otherwise be doomed to be sent to landfill sites around the city.
To help the project go further the pair are now seeking new methods of backing through crowdfunder . If this is something that would interest you then do not hesitate to pay them a visit. The girls will also be available to meet at the BYTF workspace at 7 Trongate on Friday, 11th April 2014.
Visit us soon for a feature interview with the team and catch them here on Facebook, etsy, Twitter and Pinterest.
