(SOCIETY) Ep 039 - How To Support Your Neighbourhood Businesses during COVID-19 with Neighbourgood


Listen on Spotify or Apple Podcasts.


In this episode, we speak to Emily Yau, founder of the Neighbourgood which is a social good initiative that is lending a hand to small businesses in Toronto.


They first started off helping temporarily closed businesses - restaurants, cafes, bards, shops, services, fitness studios - to bring in cash flow by helping them sell gift cards.


Since launching, they are now expanding their support by assembling a team of creators – photographers, videographers, designers, social media strategists – who want to donate their time and skills to help these small businesses.


They are their neighbourgood (free)lancers.

We speak about: - How did the idea of Neighbourgood come up? - Response from the customers and business side. - lessons learned from running a social good initiative
