A disease that takes over our lives
The past weeks went from seeing a disease taking place far from us, to a disease taking over the world at an unprecedented speed. We all have seen countries closing down completely, people getting sick and panic among many of us. The most important thing is to do your research, do not spread nonsense and listen to the authorities, which seems to be quite a problem for many of us.
Besides being a treat to our health, the disease is also a big threat to our macro and personal economic situation, on which I would like to focus today. Colombia is completely closed for at least 3 weeks, this is also likely to happen in the Netherlands or at least encouraged by the local government. Resulting that many people and companies are getting in trouble because of their loss of income.
At this moment, we need each other more than ever in order to keep providing for our families and make sure that our companies survive.
Keep going strong together
Therefore, we would like to encourage you to:
- Keep on working as much as you can from home
- Continue having meetings, but virtual
- Continue your current projects
- Initiate your planned projects
Not only your own family and company are depending on you, but also the families and companies of your colleagues, employees, providers, clients and even competitors. This might sound easier said than done, but times like these demand creativity, courage and determination to make sure that you do whatever it takes to survive. It might mean that you need to step away slightly from your current activities to make sure that you can continue these activities in the long-term when this situation improves.
And besides, what would be the alternative? Exactly, there is no alternative.
We can help you
The new strategy that Nvest initiated to execute in January started to pay off and we have some interesting developments in our current projects, but also a few new projects that were about to start. We will do whatever it takes to continue or start these projects, and we genuinely hope that our partners and clients will do the same. In that case, you will see these come by pretty soon.
In addition, we want to point out that our offline platform strategy might help you in the coming months to obtain finance or working capital, create a new strategy or setting up sourcing channels for products, services and/or clients.
We are more motivated than ever to continue our activities and help our clients and partners getting through these times. If you have any questions, ideas or comments, please get in contact with us and we will figure out a way to help!
