Colombian Event Startup Rebus Continues to Make Money Despite the Lockdown

At a time when many business executives are trapped in their homes because of the lockdown imposed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Colombian tech startup Rebus is making money by helping them organize board meetings with the help of new technology tools.

Rebus has set an example of sort for other startups to follow by quickly adjusting its tech platforms as well as its business models to suit the needs of the hour.

Today, its clients can organize events from the comfort of their homes and participate in activities without having to step out of their living room.

Until recently, according to the regional startup magazine LatAm List, Rebus was limited to helping event organizers make additional money through ancillary sales.

The startup’s flagship platform, Digital Events, is now integrated with tools for online voting and digital signatures. Therefore it is the perfect choice for corporate firms struggling to hold board meetings.

Under the Colombian regulations, firms can use video conferencing tools to hold board meetings, but they cannot issue any resolutions without signatures from the attendees.

“Within days of launching, C-suite executives signed up for the service,” says the magazine.

Rebus’s other product, Live Events, enables artists to sell tickets for their events, in addition to rewarding fans as part of attracting more viewers for their performance.

Another of its product helps plumbers and painters make little money by teaching their skills to people trapped in their homes.

Rebus has also released products that help Colombians schedule and organize drive-through coronavirus testing.  Considering the report, governments in Ecuador and Panama have shown interest in deploying the technology in their cities.
