makeena s core vision is to help shoppers make healthy and sustainable buying decisions and save money while doing so. makeena hopes to transition traditional, unhealthy shoppers into healthy and sustainable shoppers by leveling the playing field and offering natural and sustainable brands at the same or better prices than traditional brands. makeena hopes that because more of these brands are being purchased, people will experience fewer medical issues and the earth will be less polluted.
Currently there is no streamlined, mobile, location-aware, end-to-end loyalty platform for brands. makeena automates tracking and redemption for shoppers across multiple brands and retailers in-store and on-line with a single account. By pushing location and context aware incentives to shoppers, then tracking and rewarding engagement, brands build new customers and increase loyalty. On the backend, makeena collects data and provides brands with a simple way to analyze and manage that data.
We have strong experience and solid connections in the technology, data analytics, retail, and natural products space, as well as the passion, tenacity, and smarts to make makeena a thriving business. Further, makeena solves the online to onsite problem for both brand and the shopper in that real-time offer redemptions will be available for the first time across multiple channels, tracking shopper behavior for the brand and providing the shopper with instant gratification!
