Whether they’ve just kickstarted a brand-new business or evolved their existing product line … here are some amazing local lockdown business happenings you need to know about.
When the developers of Connectable Life started their business at the end of August 2019 it was because they believed healthcare should be made more accessible through online consultations. Who knew what was about to happen just a few months later? The team were incredibly excited to go LIVE and it just so happened that they did so during lockdown. “We are an online platform that connects Mind, Body and Wellness specialists with clients. It is through this platform that clients find a specialist, book, pay and have their video consult – all from the comfort and safety of their home.” Details: www.connectablelife.com, [email protected], IG: @connectablelife
An online central hub for bargains and specials www.soul-hood.com couldn’t have come at a better time! It’s a win-win for consumers and companies. Shoppers only have to make one stop to scope out local offers and businesses get a slick, good-looking and easy to use platform for boosting their revenue. The best part is that it’s completely free to post a deal or peruse the offers available in Durban, Johannesburg or Cape Town. The initiative was created by the ladies at Yahno Virtual Creative Collective and is about lending a hand to the hardworking hustlers; a digital love letter from one small and Proudly South African company to all the rest.
