At its core, what is vLife?
vLife is the world’s first (and only) social enterprise platform exclusively featuring small indie businesses to the growing number of buy-local shoppers looking to connect with them. For a more in depth description on vLife and our services, please watch this short video!
How is vlife better than current solutions for buying small and local?
- vLife only features small independent local goods and service providers – no big corporates.
- vLife notifies our buy-local members of the cool new local offerings – no need to sift through online searches dominated by big corporates.
When will vLife be accessible for communities outside of HRM?
- VLife will be quickly rolling out in other communities across Nova Scotia, then other city hubs across Canada
- Next stop – the world! We have a dream that vLife will soon be growing local economies the world over by connecting folks with genuine local experiences wherever they are. Want to help make that happen? Contact Us to help get vLife in your community!
What is the discount for Black and Indigenous Businesses?
vLife is a company situated on Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unseeded territory of the Mi’kmaq People. Out of consideration for Indigenous peoples and the detrimental effects of Canada’s colonial past, we take an active approach to help stop colonial chronology. As such we’re pleased to offer both Indigenous and Black small, independent business owners 20% off on all our vLife services.
Please contact our founder Melanie Little with any questions and to access your related promo codes. We look forward to working with you!
