a little bit about us
what we want to achieve with the Vediohead app is to let our users benefit directly from their social media habits. why?
well, we want to leave this world a better place for future generations. we want to effect change by breaking the cycle of poverty right here, in south-east asia. south-east asia is a large, complex socio-economic zone that is home to almost 700 million people of a vast array of races, religions, cultures, societal norms, and economic standing. 36 million of us live under the international poverty line. and 90% of this group live in Indonesia and the Philippines.
the gap between the rich and the poor in south-east asia is widening. Indonesia’s four richest men have more wealth than 100 million of the country's poorest people. in Vietnam, the country’s richest man earns more in a day than the poorest person earns in a decade. studies by Oxfam and the World Bank indicate that despite seeing record growth over the past 20 years, the ASEAN has struggled to distribute new wealth evenly.
without substantial political goodwill and changes in taxation and socio-economic policies, it is going to be difficult to halt, let alone reverse this trend.
so let’s start with us. let’s start with businesses. and let’s start by turning conventional business models of centralised social networking platforms upside down.
