blossom was started in early 2017 by co-founders Chris Mertens (left) and Joe Gardner (right). In its initial form, blossom functioned as a universal trading post that was meant to enable true “apples-to-oranges” exchanges.
Over the past five years, this idea has evolved greatly. Our team’s drive to make a positive impact with our technology broadened our focus and has led to a rethinking of how our platform could best serve entire communities.
The result is a completely new type of service that we believe is instrumental for community growth both now and into the future.
