LOVE GOODLY interview with NOVICA Chief Executive Roberto Milk
Posted on May 19 2016
Co-founder and Chief Executive of NOVICA Roberto Milk took inspiration from his missionary grandmother, and turned that into a company that has now raised over $65 million dollars in support of artisans around the world. According to the NOVICA website, many artists "don't have the means to sell their work on the international market. NOVICA gives them a free platform to do this, and reach customers on a global scale."
Roberto is changing that and changing the world in the process! Follow the jump to learn more about NOVICA's Co-Founder!
My Peruvian grandmother was an artisan and my American grandmother was a missionary. My parents who were both teachers would pack myself, my brother, my best friend, my cousins and my grandmothers into a VW van and we’d travel all over Latin America. I daydreamed of Indiana Jones, collected a lot of rare and questionable souvenirs, and witnessed talented artisans in challenging circumstances. NOVICA is deeply embedded in those roots.
