A brief history of THE SKATEROOM
Charles-Antoine meets Oliver Percovich
In a chance encounter with Oliver Percovich (head of award-winning NGO Skateistan), Charles saw first hand how, with the right facilities and resources, young people in some of the world’s most disadvantaged countries could be empowered to pursue a better future.
THE SKATEROOM opens its doors.
Charles’ experience with Skateistan became the seed for a new model of social entrepreneurship that would unite artists, art buyers, museums, brands and non-profits around the world. THE SKATEROOM was born.
Becoming a B Corp.
Since day one, becoming a B Corp was more than an aspiration for us
Certified B Corps are distinguishing themselves in a cluttered marketplace by offering a positive vision of a better way to do business. We were born to be a B Corp. In 2019, we achieved that goal.
The $1,000,000 milestone.
In 2020, we hit a milestone which THE SKATEROOM set during its conception: one-million in funding for social impact projects. We are proud of that number. But in true B Corp style, this is only the beginning.
