A little about us
We're changing the way communities show up for people they care about.
If you can ask for a gravy boat when you're getting married, you should be able to ask for stuff when you're starting a business too. We love weddings and housewarmings and baby showers and all the celebrations that go along with each of those things. We love the traditions that let us celebrate the personal milestones in our lives, which is why we want something to celebrate professional successes as well.
Shine Registry hosts profiles of businesses and their founders with wedding registry-style lists of the stuff that they need to succeed professionally. Founders ask for support while they are starting their businesses and give their communities an opportunity to show that support in meaningful and substantive ways.
To support someone with a Shine Registry profile
Simply select items and actions from their list of asks and click the "Fulfill!" button at the bottom of the page. Then fill out your contact information so the person with a profile can get in touch with you. You can see how many people have given to each profile with our counters for the number of Advocates and the number of Actions Taken.
