No primary category set

GoDaddy have recently announced that 30 brands including American Express, Nextdoor, PayPal, Salesforce, and Slack have joined their growing #OpenWeStand movement which aims to support and sustain entrepreneurs and microbusinesses as they operate through COVID-19 by providing tools, resources, and insights to them.

The #OpenWeStand website has created a welcoming and informative community for entrepreneurs to learn, ask questions, lend advice, and utilize resources available to them. Some of the resources being donated by the #OpenWeStand partners include how-to articles and videos, webinars and virtual consultations, discounted product/service offerings, and other relief to help them navigate the crisis.

“The needs and dreams of everyday entrepreneurs are at the very heart of everything we do as a company, we have a duty to provide entrepreneurs with access to the resources and community spirit they crucially need today. We’ve been encouraged by the initial response to #OpenWeStand and are excited to continue to grow this movement in the weeks and months ahead.”
– Fara Howard, CMO, GoDaddy


The #OpenWeStand website offers amazing tools for small businesses that need help. Due to the non-discriminatory nature of the virus, many are in the same boat, seeking help and searching for answers on how to get through this as smoothly as possible.

“We’re all in uncharted territory and standing together is how we’ll emerge stronger, together with GoDaddy, we’re proud to do our part in helping small businesses stay connected and productive no matter where they’re working from.”
– Brad Armstrong, Vice President of Business Development & Corporate Development, Slack

GoDaddy are asking the well established bigger companies to lend support to those who need it and in many cases those who have made them who they are. We all start somewhere and mostly small, many big brands and companies rely on small businesses who use their services and are even more reliant on small business growth. Right now many are joining forces to provide the water during what is for some a drought with no signs of rain.
