The path that pollinated 
Pollen Nation

Pollen Nation launched on Earth Day of 2020. Founded by Janna Urbasic, First Nation Cree of Waswanipi. 

In 2009, Janna, moved from Chicago to New Zealand. While in New Zealand, she shifted her career from marketing to conservation. This experience, gave her a new perspective on — purpose, true passion and business models that serve.

In 2016, she moved back to the US. The shadowy thoughts of creating a business became clearer by exploring new hobbies. It began by planting a wildflower garden and quickly fell into keeping honey bees. These passions, a wandering career path and determination led to designing a social impact business, which has become Pollen Nation.
