About Our Founder

Good Stuff was founded in 2018 by Vanessa Glasby. With a background in sociology and nonprofit management, Vanessa brings with her over ten years of non-profit management experience as well as a passion for making a difference. She began volunteering and serving on nonprofit boards when she was a teenager, with causes including international development, poverty reduction, food security, and environmental issues, and has continued to do so ever since.

Vanessa always knew she wanted to be involved in charity or nonprofit work, but it took her a while to figure out just what this would look like. After working as an employee in the nonprofit sector for a while, she decided it was time for a change and began chipping away at the business plan for Good Stuff in her spare time. It soon became all she could think about, and ultimately led to her leaving her nonprofit sector job so she could devote more time to business development.

About a year later, Good Stuff officially launched, and Vanessa has never looked back. She is excited to work with amazing entrepreneurs and business owners working hard to develop great products that give back to their local and global communities. Every day is a new adventure, and she wouldn’t have it any other way.
