Q: What can we expect from your company in next 6 months? What are your plans?

  • A: Launch a forum feature for members to connect online. 
  • Focus on user acquisition and brand awareness through social media.
  • Host events for members to meet and socialize in-person. 
  • Fundraise the Seed round.

Q: What is the best thing about your company that people might not know about?

A: Poom is short for ’Poom-ah-shi’ is a culture where neighbors share labor, talents, and resources as a community in Korea. We hope to create this culture of generosity in our neighborhoods through food-sharing. Join us to experience more abundant, delicious, sustainable, and connected neighborhoods.
