initiative has been launched recently with the goal to match needs
arising in the business and development sector community. The covid19
pandemic has essentially changed the supply chain systems and there is a
need to connect suppliers and companies on a global scale.
"The Covid19 initiative of leverist.de was a fast and efficient tool
in our search, which we can also recommend to companies that are
experiencing new needs due to the current situation."
As a reaction to the economic effects of the pandemic, leverist.de
launched the #BusinessVsCovid19 initiative. Companies can have their
needs and offers entered via development corporation intermediaries (EZ-Scouts, GBN, AWE, local project managers, etc.) as long as they are crisis-related and relevant to development. In this way, companies can come into direct contact with potential partners and service providers, or companies overseas can make contact with European ones.
One of the very first opportunities that the platform received was from the company Functex.
When the CEO of Functex, Klaus Buschbeck needed to identify suppliers of certified protective clothing and breathing masks from all over the world they reached out to Christine Falkenberg who works as an EZ-Scout and helps companies explore foreign markets. After an opportunity was uploaded on leverist.de Functex has to date received 9 applications from EU certified suppliers. Functex is in talks with some of the suppliers to take forward a partnership.
„Due to the current high demand arising through the Corona crisis, we want to expand our product range. In addition to sportswear, we now also want to sell medical protective clothing. On the platform leverist.de/covid19 we are looking for suitable suppliers of protective clothing. Within two weeks we already received six inquiries from interested companies from different countries. We are currently holding talks with two of them to negotiate further cooperation.
The Covid19 initiative of leverist.de was a fast and efficient tool in our search, which we can also recommend to companies that are experiencing new needs due to the current situation.“
