Dear friends of Nestworks,
It’s with heavy hearts that we share the news that effective November 1, 2023, we will be suspending operations.
It’s a longer story, however the nutshell version is that despite having been able to build up a committed following in April – June of this year, we have been unable to achieve consistent support this Fall and lack the resources to continue to fund our costs.
As a volunteer-run not-for-profit that has been building its business case since 2017, we have very limited resources and are unable to continue to subsidize the costs of delivering a premium service in the heart of Vancouver. The partnership with This World’s Ours has been wonderful, however we share the same challenges of any small business seeking to build a consistent customer base in a notoriously expensive city.
As for what’s next, we remain hopeful for the future, and will continue to meet as a board and consider future opportunities. We have not come this far only to let the dream go, however we need some time to regroup. As always, we welcome your questions and feedback.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to every one of you who has been part of the Nestworks experience to date.
The Nestworks Board and This World’s Ours team
