Softcom announces Day X, a day of answers for humans and businesses.
Softcom has announced that intuitive solutions it has built to accelerate growth for dreamers and doers will be unveiled on Day X: July 29, 2021.
The birth of these new solutions comes from the desire of the company to solve for the growth of humans and entrepreneurs who have been categorised as dreamers and doers. Dreamers are essentially all of us - hopeful, active, buzzing with ideas and with a strong desire to grow. Doers or entrepreneurs go further to turn their ideas into products, businesses, adventures, and opportunities that accommodate others and create the path for collective growth.
Day X will expose these dreamers and doers to answers for growth and an ecosystem of tools that will empower business owners to sell better, sell more, identify people, control their money and make better decisions. Ambitious, early-stage, and growing businesses should take advantage of this.
The goal of Softcom is summed up in this excerpt from the open letter to society by the CEO, Yomi Adedeji:
”Our ultimate goal is to create an open world with equitable access to intuitive solutions that address the most basic human needs and by doing so enable societal development, business growth and human prosperity.”
Softcom believes that people who dream and those who act on their dreams contribute to the advancement of human existence and enable our society.
Everyone who falls into these categories of dreamers and doers should register for Day X and join us live here www.softcom.xyz on the 29th of July, 2021 at 11.00 am
