The challenge for us and ShopMuskoka.com was that our business is completely online. We presented Muskoka Futures with a new concept that was primarily virtual and intangible in nature. However, Muskoka Futures saw the potential in us, and was able to find a unique solution for our business.
As a result of the help we received from Muskoka Futures, ShopMuskoka.com has grown significantly over the past 3 years. So much so, we expanded our services, with the formation of a second business, Green Moose Media. A full service Marketing and web design agency.
A year later, we designed and built the Bracebridge Chamber of Commerce website, and powered their directory with ShopMuskoka.com, which also came with their very own App. The first Chamber in Muskoka to have an App.
Another year later, and we had come full circle with our relationship with Muskoka Futures. In the Spring of 2017 Muskoka Futures put out an RFP for Web Design, re-branding & Marketing initiatives. We were very proud and fortunate to have been chosen for the project.
From being a client of Muskoka Futures to now having them as a client of ours shows how far we have come. It also shows the demonstrates the importance of having an organization such as Muskoka Futures in our Community. Without them, we would not have grown into the two businesses we are today.
Muskoka Futures invested in one business, which lead to the creation of two.
