Investors in Community open online platform to all businesses for Free

19th March 2020

Investors In Communities; this week have taken a bold decision, along with their shareholder support, to release the platform for FREE for all businesses for the next four months, and with NO obligation to subscribe to us after this time.

This is the contribution IIC will make to their communities in the months ahead. It will shortly be in national press, as the de-facto place to go if you need or want help. For many businesses, it’s all hands to the pumps as they figure out their survival strategies, and community support isn’t making it to the agenda.

However, after working hours, many individual IIC team members are trying to help where they can, delivering food and medication to those in isolation, gifting their time etc. In the last 24 hours many unregulated and unstructured social media groups have sprung up, offering to coordinate local need, but they are not structured, regulated, or in some cases even safe for both the helper and the recipient. The Investors in Community platform is free to use for all charities and all individuals, and now it is free for all businesses of all sizes. ( for the next four months to 31st July 2020)

If you as a business were to join and use them, you can provide a route for all staff to help when they wish, through designated charities and recognised community groups, that are validated and safe. At the end of this period, you will have collated the various stats that are verified and checked, for your exemplify your business as a “stand-out” company. You will also have created a safe environment for your teams to contribute where they are able/ willing, and you will by the act of joining them, have helped all charities on the platform in their time of sincere need

There is no obligation to continue with IIC, once the free to use period is ended, so this is a no risk decision for you at this time. They have the “Collaborative Groups” function enabled, to allow you to add your entire investee base of companies to a common list – all for free.
