Founder’s Story

Our Founder, Matthew Manos, launched verynice with the specific intention of creating an incredible example of what a socially responsible business should look like. Born out of his pro-bono practice which dates back to when he was only 16 years old, Matthew has worked tirelessly over the past decade to serve as an early advocate for social entrepreneurship in the design industry, and has pioneered an inspirational new movement in pro-bono service that has reached a global scale.
