LOCKDOWN START-UP TAKECVR LAUNCHES CROWDFUNDING CAMPAIGN


Who says privacy has to be so boring?

LONDON, UK – A new privacy accessories start-up called takecvr (take cover, get it?), built in lockdown during the pandemic, has launched on Kickstarter with their, shall we say, gorgeous Macbook camera covers.

PR PEOPLE: “Sarah, all the angles you’ve listed for your press release aren’t news. No one will care.”

SARAH, FOUNDER OF TAKECVR: “But isn’t it fascinating that we built this whole company working from home while on lockdown in a pandemic?”

PR PEOPLE: “Not news.”

SARAH: “But now more than ever, people are working from home on their laptops and creating more opportunities to embarrass themselves in front of their cameras and letting hackers do their hacking thing. Didn’t you hear about that guy who showered in front of his whole company? We make a fun product that solves this problem.”

PR PEOPLE: “Yeah, still not news.”

SARAH: “But Apple just said that people shouldn’t use those ugly black slidey things to cover their camera because it will break their expensive laptops. Shouldn’t people know there’s another option?”

PR PEOPLE: “Hmmm… unfortunately not news.”

SARAH: “What if we raise a million pounds on Kickstarter?”

PR PEOPLE: “Wow, you raised a million pounds? That’s news.

SARAH: “Well, not yet, but it would help if we got some press to drive awareness for takecvr and the Kickstarter campaign.”

At takecvr, we make privacy accessories that aren’t ugly. Sound boring? We know. That’s half of what we are trying to fix, starting with some exciting Macbook camera covers. Also, not news. Yes, we know.

If for some reason, you want to write about this “not news” and help us get to that million pounds, here is our launch video, and here are some beauty shots.

takecvr
We are takecvr. We design privacy accessories with personality because we believe it’s not crazy to be serious about privacy and security AND have fun. We’re a pandemic start-up, comprised of just a handful of people (mostly unemployed), working from home (like many of you), in a business that launched in eight weeks. All because we believe our new normal doesn’t have to be boring or scary.

We’re getting started with our Macbook camera covers as it’s the biggest crime against design humanity. We’ve seen what folks have been using to cover their laptop camera – (tape, Post-It notes, cheap plastic).

Come join the fun on Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/takecvr/takecvr

Making African art a cornerstone of the global Art market: Pavillon54 Ltd Launches Pavillon54.com


Making Africa a cornerstone of the Art market: Pavillon54 Limited Launches Pavillon54.com, the new digital hub for African art.

LONDON July 2020: Pavillon54 Limited today announces the launch of its online platform, pavillon54.com, a digital center for Modern and Contemporary Art from Africa and the Diaspora. The website is a one-stop digital platform and community for artists, collectors, dealers, institutions and enthusiasts in the ‘African’ art world, incorporating various sales and educational services such as:

• An e-gallery: Pavillon54 showcases the best art from Africa and the diaspora and includes a roster of curated artists who are able to sell their artworks via the platform. Artists are onboarded or pre-vetted by the Pavillon54 team, to ensure the highest quality of artworks are displayed. Collectors can visit the website to discover new artists and build their art collections from Pavillon54’s selection.
• A well-documented blog and other resources: Pavillon54 publishes informative articles, reports or databases that aim to inform on the state, history and context of African art, providing collectors and dealers with the knowledge required to make intelligent art investments, and researchers and enthusiasts with the tools to build their African art knowledge.
• Experiences and events: Online and offline events aim to build a community for art from Africa and the diaspora. Events will include pop-up exhibitions, studio visits, talks or artistic retreats in different cities across the world, online Live events via social media channels, and in-person discovery and immersion experiences.

“More than an online gallery, we are building an ecosystem that can support a sustainable development of the African art market” says Dana Endundo Ferreira, Founder and CEO of Pavillon54. “We make Africa a cornerstone of the global market by increasing artists exposure, investing in education and expanding the collector base”.

Indeed, the launch of Pavillon54 comes at an important time, as the African Art Market sees sustained growth and significance in the art world in past years and is gaining increased exposure due to recent Black Lives Matter movements. However, despite the increasing appetite for African art, a lack of strong gallery representation and few connections with the international art network means that many artists from Africa have limited opportunities for exposure. Education and information about the African art market is also still relatively under-documented, restricting the ability for the African art world to flourish. Pavillon54’s solution aims to rectify these issues, and provide a centralized space for artists, collectors, institutions and dealers to collectively build the African art market.

ABOUT PAVILLON 54

Pavillon54 is the go-to platform for Modern and Contemporary African art, connecting artists, collectors, buyers, institutions, and art lovers across the world. Founded by Dana Endundo Ferreira in 2020, it combines an e-gallery sales platform, a research-focused online blog, and various online and offline events and experiences to develop a worldwide ecosystem and community around Modern and Contemporary African art. The company aims to propel the African art market by creating the first and foremost platform dedicated to developing the arts and culture of Africa – by Africans, for Africans and for (the rest of) the world.

Kanabiz launches a marketplace addressing the legal problems of cannabis and CBD


https://www.prfire.com/

Paris, July 09, 2020 –  Kanabiz has developed a  cannabis-specificplatform,  and  offers  a unique opportunity for the many producers and resellers of products at CBD to be able to offer their products to a much wider international  audience,  thanks to automatic legal filters  according to the legal status of  product components  (CBD, THC, CBG…) developed by the Kanabiz website..

Cédric Billot, founder of Kanabiz, explains: “There are more and more manufacturers of products in CBD,  and it has not been easy for them to make a place on the internet. Kanabiz intervenes in this direction and helps them to develop, bringing them  international visibility  through our legally specialized platform   and our translations into several languages. »

Kanabiz is keen to offer its hand-picked solutions for their quality, composition and low ecological impact. Products containing CBD on the Kanabiz platform and sold in France comply with current legislation,with a THC content of no more than 0.2%.

“The legal framework for the cannabis industry is constantly evolving. Due to the growing popularity of CBD, more and more consumers want to try these new products, without always being aware of what is legal and what is not. As a result, we have developed Kanabiz, so that all consumers are legally safe and confident when they order, wherever they are. Explains  Cédric Billot, founder of Kanabiz.

In order to continue to develop Kanabiz, the company has successfully completed its first fundraising with private investors,and will continue its expansion with the launch of the site in other markets (Spanish, Portuguese, Italian…) during the year 2020.

About Kanabiz

Kanabiz is a French platform offering a full range of products containing CBD (cannabidiol): oils, concentrates, vaping liquids, cosmetics, dietary supplements and beverages, but also a wide range of accessories.

Kanabiz is owned by C4B International, which specializes in marketing and legal monitoring of the cannabis industry, and was founded in 2019 by Cédric Billot, who has a keen knowledge of the cannabis market in France and Europe.

Recruitment firm launches new group brand and sets sights on transformational growth


Search, the established provider of multi-discipline recruitment solutions, has embarked on a transformational growth strategy with the market launch of its new Search Recruitment Group brand.

Building on its established foundations and following a period of sustained market growth, Search CEO Richard Vickers – who joined the company from Page Group plc last year – is now leading the forward-thinking executive team into the organisation’s next phase of expansion.

The experienced and entrepreneurial board, comprising of Mark Bailey, founder and CEO of Group business Henderson Scott, and longstanding CFO Stuart Dick, are focused on delivering a trajectory of growth in every discipline of the business.  And they believe the Search Recruitment Group structure provides a platform for creating a house of specialist recruitment brands.

Utilising advances in recruitment technology, and by maximising economies of scale by harnessing knowledge from across the organisation, Search Recruitment Group will deliver specialist services aligned to key market areas.

As part of today’s announcement, the group has also revealed the integration of its existing technology divisions, Search Technology and Henderson Scott, its highly successful 2018 acquisition.

Now operating under the reputable Henderson Scott brand, the integration will create a team of 60+ talented consultants, and will offer comprehensive talent solutions, offering an improved proposition for clients and candidates across technology, cloud, cyber & IT Sales.

Two new state-of-the-art offices will also open in Liverpool and Edinburgh, broadening the Henderson Scott footprint, supporting its continued focus on high growth and emerging markets, expanding further into the UK, as well continuing its success in Europe and the US.

CEO Richard Vickers said: “Within Search Recruitment Group there are many highly talented and experienced people working across a large portfolio of industries and sectors, with best in class knowledge of their markets.

“Through Search Recruitment Group we have a platform to leverage this expertise, and deliver market-leading recruitment solutions to candidates and clients in those sectors we specialise in.

“Our aim is to maximise talent from across the group and empower our teams to really make a difference, harnessing knowledge and skillsets, helping us make a real difference as the market emerges post-Covid.”

Mark Bailey, Group board member and Henderson Scott CEO said:

“Henderson Scott leads the way in the industry and it made sense to consolidate our Search technology brand into this market leading outfit, reflecting the vision of the Search Recruitment Group board to drive growth through our technology specialists.

“Henderson Scott has many long-standing and trusted partnerships with clients, as does Search Technology, so our adoption of an integrated delivery model will provide greater choice and access to expertise, all of which will positively impact our customers and allow us to service more areas of their hiring needs.”

Blue Pages “App” Website for Non-Emergency Directory Service Launches


A new directory service called Blue Pages “App” (Blue Pages), https://www.bluepagesapp.co.uk/, has launched its website in the UK aimed at providing a one-stop-shop for information about non-emergency services such as charities, government departments and other non-profit making organisations. Under Blue Pages these are called “Member Organisations.”

The aim is to provide an easy and cost effective way for these organisations to publicise what they do and to make it easier for consumers or members of the public to find the information they need as quickly as possible.

The original idea, to which Blue Pages owes its thinking, comes from research into the number of waste calls made to the emergency services 999 number. In the coronavirus pandemic research highlighted that there had been a marked increase in demand by the general public for all kinds of help. Looking further back, specifically at 999 calls, it was found that of the 30 million plus calls made to 999 each year, some 30% were deemed a waste i.e. non-emergency, costing the UK Taxpayer approximately £50 million per year.

The idea has now evolved into a more comprehensive directory service providing member organisations with the ability to list their services whilst taking advantage of features such as Events, Classified Ads (e.g. Jobs) and Articles. There is a range of affordable member subscription options available, including a Free option and £1 per year at the Silver level.

Director, Ray Sherry, of Greenforce (Wales) Limited who has launched the service says, “By chance I came across an article on waste 999 calls. After a bit of research, I found that there wasn’t a single website or app out there that brought all these help services together in one place. Instead people would just call 999 because it was the easiest thing to do. I hope we can influence that over time but for now we just want to make it easier for people to find the right help.”

With more and more people using mobile phones, to access help services, a mobile phone app will follow in a few days. The website initially lists over 200 member organisations and will be launching its marketing campaign on 5 July 2020, to coincide with the NHS’s 72nd Birthday.

Blue Pages App aims to donate at least 25% of its directory income to good causes from Year 4 onwards.
