Following health and safety guidelines, RevRoad has moved all its events and meetings online. Even so, our dedication to showing up for entrepreneurs remains strong. We remain focused on helping portfolio companies find unique ways to thrive during the pandemic. As we ebb and flow, our goal is to help our portfolio companies grow based on the needs of their target markets.
Branding exercises, web development, social media, and PR, are just some of the marketing services RevRoad offers portfolio companies to meet the current demands and market complications with COVID-19. In a recent website and email campaign initiative, we launched a bundled discount program involving portfolio companies Hallo, Skillstruck, Education Lifeskills, and Literal. This At Home Learning program offers digital learning products to K-12 students for free until the end of the 2019/2020 school year.
Another way RevRoad has adjusted to address current challenges is the increased allocation of more resources into digital ad spend and social media. Recently, a portfolio company in the ag tech industry did just that. Still sales-focused, they realized they needed to expand their reach to the online space. Their hope is to attract farmers that need tech solutions to compensate for fewer available workers as a result of the pandemic.
As of mid April 2020 more than 22M Americans have lost their jobs resulting in a mass job search during the COVID-19 pandemic. In response, recent portfolio company, Mentorli, is hosting a virtual career fair. The Mentorli team is excited to announce the #GetHired Summit, aimed at combating unemployment in the U.S. The team has been working around the clock to pull together keynotes, companies, and resources to help find jobs. The summit will be hosted virtually on April 29–30. Visit gethiredsummit.com to reserve your seat or get more information.
There are so many exciting things happening at RevRoad. What kind of out-of-the-box thinking can we help you with during COVID-19? Apply today and find out.
