March 2020 will always be remembered as the time that without presendent we where in lock down, quarantined, with an unkown virus out there and with one of the highest level of uncertainty we have lived as a modern society.
What will happen? When will we go back to normal? What are the concequences of this virus?
In parallel many businesses had to shut down, close doors and stop operating. Small businesses where the most affected by this crisis, including Livingeneva; collaborations cancelled, contracts too and no idea what will happen in the future. However, I was in the middle of the biggest re-branding in 6 years, the website, logo and brand you see today.
In the middle of this craziness, maybe because I felt hopeless, I had an idea. A crazy one some might think. Why not do a crowdfunding that will help finish the new website and in addition invite other businesses to join to help them sell vouchers for their businesses too?
This is how I had the idea to invite 9 businesses owned by women to join me for the #LivinGenevafuture Crowdfunding, like this helping them I would be helping the project of the new website too!
After 21 very intense crowdfunding days we reached and surpassed our goal of 25k CHF making it to 39’465 CHF! Helping me and the other 9 businesses continue our activities and pay our bills despite the crisis.
I have to say it was a pleasure and an honor to work and learn with these amazing women about crowdfunding and helping and motivating each other during those difficult times.
