About Me

In May 2020 the think tank AlterContacts launched the Lockdown Economy, an international non-profit social-economic and educational initiative. The objective is to help small businesses and self-employed professionals to overcome the challenges of the pandemic and reactivate the economy. The initiative has been registered by the United Nations as an Acceleration Action for the Sustainable Development ;

We interview entrepreneurs around the world to see how the lockdown affected their business, their market and their future. Both in English and in local languages. It serves them as a forum to speak, a source of inspiration, role models and ideas on how to save business during the COVID, a way to connect with a wider community of entrepreneurs.

This content is already used as a real-time educational and research materials by universities. It connects students with small business owners from the other side of the world and prepares them for the new economy.

We finance it from the money saved from corporate jobs that are running out. We are looking for funding available to continue running this ;
