As the licensing industry continues to do its part to flatten the curve of the COVID-19 pandemic, many companies are adjusting to a new normal that includes working from home. License Global has continued to highlight the ways that the business community has adapted to the evolving nature of the industry on the fly. From Brainbase’s new technology stack to Vida Brands’ community outreach, our ongoing series shares the licensing community’s best-practices of working during such unprecedented circumstances.
In today’s continuation of our series, we take a look at Beanstalk. The licensing agency revealed its new virtual initiatives and shares how its partners are doing their part to help in this crisis, as well as the following inspiring note to the broader licensing community:
“COVID-19 has changed all of our lives so suddenly, from the way we work, socialize, travel, communicate and much more. While there is some relative comfort knowing that we are all in this together, the next months are going to be especially challenging as we adjust, remain calm and find new ways to stay healthy, work effectively and be virtually together. We will come together in unexpected and comforting ways. Creativity will be unleashed that will be enlightening. And we will have a new appreciation for the simpler things in life — nature, family, friends and even slowing down from the day-to-day frenzy of the urban jungle. While we may not have expected that this situation would have unified us, it has. And it has forced us to be resilient. Resilience is a powerful and empowering trait. It gives us courage and some sense of control. Once this is behind us, we will emerge even stronger knowing that we endured the most difficult of setbacks.”
Thinking of all of you and wishing wellness and safety,
Allison Ames, President & CEO of Beanstalk
