Vkind was co-founded by Star Simmons in 2019, a vegan since 1998. Drawing from her 25+ years of entrepreneurial experience and passion for animal welfare and sustainable living, Star conceived of Vkind and The VegEconomy as the vehicle to plant seeds of global change. After assembling a talented team dedicated to furthering the Vkind mission, the company set out to change business-as-usual and change the world.
