Supporting the Resilience of Eco-Inclusive Enterprises during the COVID-19 Pandemic
Online workshop series for SEED supported enterprises
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, enterprises around the world are now facing several sudden challenges such as not generating revenues anymore, missing customer base, productions on-hold, transport constraints et cetera. In order to support eco-inclusive enterprises that are or have been part of the SEED programme, SEED has launched an online workshop series tackling these issues eco-inclusive enterprises are currently encountering.
The online workshop series
During the workshops, SEED will provide SEED eco-inclusive enterprises with the most relevant tools to work on enterprise resilience. The workshops will make use of the Zoom conferencing software allowing for break-out and working in small virtual groups. The online discussions will utilise MURAL, a collaborative online tool, which will allow individuals to work visually and collaboratively on the resilience tools. The tools are based on design thinking and user-centered frameworks allowing the participants to work on their own questions and their real-life cases. The two-hours long workshops will take place on a weekly basis from 6th of May until 28th of May.
Topics of the workshop series
Cutting costs: How to cut costs under the constraints imposed by COVID-19
Cash-Cycles: Working on the how to’s of cash-flow management

As part of the workshop series, participating enterprises will also get access to a comprehensive toolkit about all workshop topics based on experiences of 30 SEED eco-inclusive enterprises and the rich universe of SEED tools supporting enterprises along different stages of development.
SEED is able to offer this workshop series to SEED supported enterprises with the generous support of the German Federal Ministry of the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety.
