A Catholic technology company recently launched a platform for Catholic publishers, small businesses, and religious communities to reach customers and supporters.
Catholic Ventures announced this month the launch of Catholic.store, an e-commerce platform working with publishers and small businesses selling Catholic books, jewelry, art, and other products. The announcement said the platform will donate a percentage of proceeds to the Church.
Matt Meeks, CEO of Catholic Ventures, told CNA in an interview that “we live in the most disruptive time period in human history, and I don’t think we really recognize that, and that’s particularly the case for the Church.”
“We're seeing massive disruption within every industry,” Meeks said. “If you look at hotels, you’ve got Airbnb, and taxis, you’ve got Uber, and retail and actually distribution, you’ve got Amazon.”
