The global COVID-19 pandemic has created a very uncertain landscape for millions of small businesses, which is going to make it very challenging for businesses to survive.
Automaker has been in business since 2011, we provide an important platform for small businesses in the areas of testing and simulation to access large Automotive and Aerospace makers in several emerging markets, our main product is the production of B2B expos, which allows specialist testing , and R&D suppliers to showcase their products.
As our business is primarily producing events, we have been hit especially hard, we have a number of contracted workers who we want to keep on, and we want to be ready to promote small business through our platforms when this crisis is over
Like many businesses the Government grant scheme wasn't available to us as we use a rented office in a business development centre that the local govt owns, so we are hoping the goodwill of people can help us stay above water and keep trading going forward.
We will be awarding donors with our merchandise, and we are extremely grateful for any donations people feel that they can offer.
We have included a video to give you an idea how we help smaller businesses taken at one of our shows where we were promoting specialised business to larger customers
In return for donations we are offering some of our merchandise and planning a series of networking social evenings to bring the industry together once this awful crisis is over.
