Staying Connected during Covid-19

We are aware that there is one headline dominating our inboxes these days…COVID-19. First and foremost, we hope you and yours are staying healthy during this time.

At NaviStone, we are inspired by the innovative approach businesses are taking to forge ahead and engage during this unprecedented global event. Now, more than ever, our customers need us to stay connected. We may be distanced from each other physically, but that does not stop our ability to interact with one another in new ways.

There is no better time for our community of marketers to rally together and lead with creativity, ingenuity and communication. Let’s rise to the occasion and face this crisis together by reconstructing the path to purchase. Some of our consumers may have hit a fork in the road, so let’s pave a new road, build that bridge and re-route. It’s our responsibility as marketers to create and engage. We’ve got this.

Tech Madness

NaviStone is the 2020 Tech Madness Champion

The NCAA annual March Madness basketball tournament may have been cancelled, but that didn’t stop the Cincinnati startup community from competing in a bracket of their own. Hosted by Cincy Inno, the 2020 Tech Madness competition started with a bracket of 32 teams and one question: Which startups would you invest in?

Cincy Inno readers cast over 3600 votes and the winner? NaviStone! Along the way to victory, NaviStone beat out companies across various industries.

“Through Tech Madness we hoped to create a friendly competition that highlighted some of the exciting tech companies that made up Cincinnati’s startup scene.” Maddy Kennedy, Minne Inno

We Care. People Matter.

Community Support: This past quarter, our entire team got together in Cincinnati for work, play and volunteering. The NaviSquad was honored to pack over 1000 Power Packs for the Freestore Foodbank in Cincinnati. The Freestore Foodbank's mission is to improve lives by eliminating hunger in partnership with the community. Their vision is to create a hunger-free, healthy and thriving community. The Power Packs are packs of food that are sent home each Friday with students to ensure they have something to eat on the weekends.

Shopping Night In America: At NaviStone, we recognize the strain the retail industry is under during this time. That’s why we are encouraging you to participate in events like Shopping Night In America.
