eekhoe is a cloud-based networking platform that is radically reshaping the world of business cards.
About half of the greenhouse effect is caused by CO2 and this impacts global warming. Forest trees act as Earth’s natural CO2 sink, alleviating this effect.
However, trees are destroyed in the production of printed business cards.
One of the main thrust behind our invention is to contribute towards drastically reducing the carbon footprint by encouraging technology deployment and eliminate the need for printed business cards, saving forest trees globally. Migrating 100 employees onto a digital platform saves a tree annually (Note: A mature tree absorbs about 20kg/45lbs of CO2 per year)
While eekhoe transforms the custom of business card exchange, it also strives to preserve timeless, endeared elements of the ritual invented in the 15th century by the Chinese.
