Managing Your Business Through A Time Of Crisis

Featuring the last webinar from the Investment Support Webinar Series with Zakia Moulaoui from Invisible Cities on how she’s managed through COVID-19 as a business owner

We hosted our third installment of the Investment Support Webinar Series titled ‘Managing Your Business Through A Time Of Crisis’. Zakia Moulaoui, founder of Invisible Cities and one of our investees from the Power Up Scotland programme, talked to us about how she has helped her team and business make it through COVID-19.

Listen to the webinar as she goes through funding options the business applied for, what has been successful and unsuccessful in mitigating risk during coronavirus and where they are heading in the future.

You can find out more about how to support Invisible Cities by going to their website here.

Invisible Cities is a social enterprise that trains people affected by homelessness to become walking tour guides of their own city. These alternative tours are on offer for tourists and locals alike.

Every copy counts this Winter

Your local vendor is at the sharp end of the cost-of-living crisis this Winter. Prices of energy and food are rising rapidly. As is the cost of rent. All at their highest rate in 40 years. Vendors are amongst the most vulnerable people affected. Support our vendors to earn as much as they can and give them a fighting chance this Winter.
