Please join us for our June Expert Webinar on Thursday, June 25th from 12-1 PM EDT entitled, “It’s Smarter to Barter – How Innovative Commerce Communities are Building Capacity in the New Economy.” The world has changed. Personal finances and business economics are struggling to create ways to access resources and become sustainable and profitable. A new type of commerce community, UpliftNow, is creating opportunity to leverage unused capacity. Utilizing a time-proven method of commerce, barter trade, UpliftNow provides a technology platform that enables individuals and businesses to access and capitalize on surplus goods, skills, and services, thus creating savings and growth. Members can easily buy and sell from one another, using community Trade Tokens, as a medium of exchange, instead of cash. The mission is to create synergy within communities, empower entrepreneurship, contribute to building thriving educational institutions, create job opportunities, and support nonprofits. Join us and become part of the solution in the innovative commerce, barter trade community movement.
