Who is actually behind THE GOOD RUN? We are a team of people with different backgrounds but a common love for running and the desire to do something good. For all those involved, THE GOOD RUN is therefore much more than just a business idea. Each of us has personal motives for being part of it. Especially Kathi, who as a professional runner had long searched for a sustainable shop for sports - but just couldn’t find one. After Kathi had developed the concept for THE GOOD RUN, it didn't take long for the first friends and colleagues from her environment to get excited about the idea. So there were already nine of us when we pressed the go-live button of our crowdfunding campaign on StartNext in July 2020. What an exciting two weeks! After a successful closing, we were even able to attract a business angel and hire our first permanent employee.
The Good Run was finally founded as a SOCIAL ENTERPRISE by the 5-member founding team consisting of Kathi, Katrin, Sven, Jan and Matthias. Kathi has since been responsible for THE GOOD RUN as Managing Director, supported by Sven's project management skills. Katrin manages the creative side of the company with the help of Jan. And without Matthias, our business angel, our kick start would not have been possible. All employees have a stake in the company (according to the slicing pie model). Because we demand fair working conditions not only for the employees of the brands in our online shop.
