Event management software provider Coconnex has announced a new partnership with social enterprise charity Buy One Give One (B1G1).
B1G1 is a social enterprise and non-profit organisation with a mission to create a world full of giving. Unlike conventional giving models, B1G1 helps small and medium-sized businesses achieve more social impact by embedding giving activities into everyday business operations and creating unique giving stories. Every business transaction (and as a result, the business’ day-to-day activity) can impact lives for as little as just one penny.
From new business, contract renewals all the way through to demos and enquiries, Coconnex will be donating money to B1G1, which will in turn use the money to positively impact the lives of those in need.
“Through B1G1, we can link our business activities to powerful, high-impact projects that help to change our world, from giving seeds to farmers, a child an education or a person in need urgent healthcare, our work in this industry now has a positive impact on our planet,” commented Chandresh Pala, founder of Coconnex. “Giving is at the very core of Coconnex values. With every piece of new business we do, with each contract renewal and even every demo we carry out and enquiry we receive, we donate to B1G1 and give our clients a certificate to show the positive impact on someone’s life their interaction with Coconnex has had.”
Going forward the company even has plans to add charitable donations for each payment they receive on time from their clients.
“We think it will be a nice incentive as well as a way for us to say thank you to our clients,” added Pala.
Coconnex has made over 240 donations already this year, and will be giving even more to charity this month after winning a contract to be the major tech supplier for four Airmic risk and insurance management events – where it will provide interactive floorplans, plus online registration, booking and networking platforms.
