Based on the latest research, it is likely that cities across America will be in periodic lockdown over the next 18 months, until a vaccine is in mass production. Local businesses will be hit hard.
To avoid a rebound in transmission, these policies will need to be maintained until large stocks of vaccine are available to immunise the population – which could be 18 months or more.... We therefore conclude that epidemic suppression is the only viable strategy at the current time. The social and economic effects of the measures which are needed to achieve this policy goal will be profound.
How Wefunder can help
Wefunder has funded ~$130M in hundreds of small businesses from over 400,000 investors. If your business has customers who care, we can help. Or, if there’s a small business you care about, nominate them for funding.
In March, as the stock market has fallen, investments 2Xed on Wefunder. People want to support the businesses they care about. Wefunder allows everyone to make investments (or loans) as small as $100 into the businesses that they love.
Typically, half of the funds come from your own customer base, with the other half from the Wefunder investor-base. We do all the work of collecting funds and send you one wire when it's over.
