In order to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus, people have been instructed to practice social distancing, and for nonessential businesses to stop operating. These social changes will have a lasting impact on the economic impact locally and around the globe. If you are a business owner, you might feel you are closing doors for good.
pparadox, a Reno-based company, is helping fellow business owners survive the volatile social effects of COVID-19. To help ensure Reno/Sparks commerce stays strong, pparadox is providing free marketing strategy sessions to concerned business owners. The goal of these sessions is to design creative ways to keep businesses running while following the best practices to prevent the spread of the disease.
When pparadox owner, Mateo Gallisa, was asked why pparadox decided to offer free services to struggling businesses, he responded, “Early on, I realized that this disease will forever change how we do business and interact with each other, and some businesses might not make it. I want us [pparadox] to be the calming voice of reason, while everyone else is panic-buying toilet paper.
“Right now it’s time for us to help one another, spend time with family, and take care of that stuff you never have the chance to get to. It’s time to stop focusing on the negative, and instead, create something positive.”
During Mateo’s last year at UC Davis, he started Roomba Rescue (a recycling passion and anthropomorphic project), a Robot Adoption Agency: he bought broken Roombas on eBay, refurbished them, then sold them on his website and Amazon with names + personalities for people to adopt into their homes. After moving to Sparks in 2015, Mateo went on to start several companies, with the latest being pparadox.
pparadox is interested in the success and longevity of businesses in the Reno and Sparks area. Headquartered at UNR’s Innevation Center, pparadox offers marketing strategy and consulting services to generate creative solutions for businesses located around the world that have grown stagnant.
