Ideas Cartel launches Cartel Connect Online!

In times like these, every individual, every business, every brand, and every institution has a choice to make despite the contagious chaos we find ourselves in. ⁣Ideas Cartel, a community-focused business have made the choice to respond to COVID-19, with proactive positivity and innovation.

Cartel Connect Online (CCO) is a new offering with community values and experiences at the heart of it, driven through the Ideas Cartel app. This new digital members’ club brings together a collective of like-minded individuals—all facing similar challenges, and with many of the same needs and concerns.

We’re meeting uncertainty with ingenuity, creativity, and consideration—the same qualities humans have employed to overcome crises for years. ⁣- Schuyler Vorster, Founder of Ideas Cartel

Whether it’s social distancing or full isolation, the truth remains that you, your colleagues, teams and workforces still need to operate businesses as well as maintain physical and mental wellbeing. More than that, we all need a feel-good factor amidst so much uncertainty.

As inherently social creatures, our desire to interact with others must be met in new, healthy and responsible ways over the coming month—and even beyond that. Staying connected through CCO is a way to break away from social media hysteria through a refined digital experience that focuses on supportive, constructive and (as always) inspiring interactions.

We’re hoping to lead a social-change revolution, one member at a time:

  1. Engagement: Ask questions, share perspectives and connect with a community of like-minded entrepreneurs to find solutions, together, through live experiences.
  2. Savings: Small businesses have fewer overheads, so you’ll save money when you support them.
  3. Speed: Get quicker deliveries of essential services when you order from smaller providers.
  4. Service: A team of community managers awaits to help you solve problems—all you need to do is ‘Request Assistance’ on the Ideas Cartel app.


The Cartel Connect Online membership is broken down, broadly, into three parts

Online Live Experiences & Classes
