TAO Member Company: Matter Supply
Give us a short intro to your business:
Matter Supply is a Digital Agency in Portland.
What resources can your business offer the community during the COVID pandemic?:
Expertise with Shopify, for those trying to move business online. We’ve put together a program aimed at helping businesses start up an eCommerce solution in these tough times: https://localgoesglobal.com/. We also built a Chrome extension called “Powell’s Compare” where any time that you are browsing Amazon for a book, a link pops up to buy it from Powells if they have it as well.
What is the best way for the community to get in touch?:
You can reach out at Mikey@mattersupply.co.
What’s your favorite way to pass the time during self-quarantine?:
We Slack each other pictures of our amazing meals. Everyone is getting so good at cooking in the Quarantine.
What’s one thing that helps you stay positive or gives you hope during difficult times?:
In spite of all of the systemic problems and personal loneliness, we do feel like we are coming together and addressing what matters now in a way that we weren’t doing before as a society.
