Co-investing in marketing

Consulting company Lemons. GE, as your advisor, presents a wonderful project for female entrepreneurs.

Co-investing in marketing

For companies that have female founders or most of their employees are women, we offer up to 60%, which is required for strategic brand/business development.

As they say, 2021 is a year of news and new challenges. We have always had the ambition to be innovators in the field of marketing, to meet the challenges of the new era with an innovative product.

The pandemic only showed us that a new vision of the business is important for development, yesterday's marketing tools and well-learned activities are outdated and no longer work, experts in the field will undoubtedly agree with us.

It is the concern of every marketer today to do something different, emotion-focused, something bigger and more complex than the various marketing activities taken separately. (Managing a social page, creating a website, planning a holiday event, running separate PR campaigns, managing a specific process crisis, or even disseminating information on a large scale, etc.) 

Lemons has been actively positioning itself in the Georgian and European markets since 2011 as a business supporter in Internet marketing. Since 2018, it has been successfully implementing similar types of investment and consulting projects with co-financing.

Co-investment - The products of investment companies in the market are associated with a share concession in exchange for receiving money. Lemons'  team replaced the existing stereotype with the introduction of a co-financing project with a new vision for investing.
