Our Story (so far)...

2020: Social platform

Two friends who knew nothing about business started a business. No product, no revenue, just an ambition to do something good for the world. Our first idea was a social media platform for sustainability.

We spent 8 months coding our MVP: a carbon calculator for home and travel. The term “eco trace project” was thrown around, eventually leading to the name Etrify (eco trace ify).

2021: The pivot

We released an MVP no one used (well, apart from our parents). We spent months trying to fundraise pre-seed and raised nothing.

In the summer of 2021 it was back to the drawing board to figure out Etrify v2. We spent 6 months on user research, product and customer discovery, and prototyping solutions.

2022: Carbon Sprint®

We launched our Carbon Sprint® to help small businesses calculate their carbon footprint, with a goal of achieving real impact through carbon reduction.

In the later half of the year, we'll start back on R&D and innovation, looking at how we can scale the Sprint. Watch this space 👀 .
