You’re Not Alone
Does it feel like recent events have emerged out of no where? Us too. Sometimes no matter how hard we try to protect our businesses from circumstances such as the outbreak of COVID-19, it is impossible to fully prepare.
The good news is you’re not alone. Around the globe thousands of entrepreneurs are being hit by the same difficult situation. So, we thought we’d show our support to the entrepreneur community by sharing some words of motivation and advice. Here is a message from our amazing COO Julie. Click play below to listen:
Harnessing Positivity – Some advice from Julie
Here’s a summary of Julie’s tips to help you get through the challenging time:
- Keep it social – organise video lunch dates, online board games. At Bridge we have opened a virtual office online in the form of a video call, so we can all connect at any time.
- Take care of yourself – websites like Recipes for Wellbeing can be really useful
- Consider crisis as opportunity– take this time to reflect on your life and to think about the next step. And, if you decide this is to open up a business, just know you have a whole community behind you to help you do that.
An Idea – Solutions for Humanity
Speaking of positivity, we decided to take our own advice and create opportunity by generating more social impact as a response to COVID-19. We’ve created a new version of our online incubation program: ‘The Leap – Solutions For Humanity’.
We are looking for 20 entrepreneurs with solutions to combat COVID-19, directly or indirectly, and mentors to guide them. These solutions don’t have to be related to the healthcare sector. They could be a home entertainment solution for those stuck inside, or, a way to help elderly people feeling particularly isolated by the situation. The goal is to reach out and generate positive and innovative solutions to help deal with the crisis.
