(NEW YORK, April 28, 2022) - M2Ü NYC has been selected for Qurate Retail Group’s Small Business Spotlight, an initiative to strengthen diverse small businesses through increased exposure and various other pro bono in-kind services. The program, which launched in 2020 and is now in its third year, builds on Qurate Retail Group’s longstanding foundation of supporting small businesses and reflects the company’s commitment to increasing opportunities for underrepresented groups.
Qurate Retail Group, a vCommerce leader that includes QVC, HSN, Zulily and several other brands, is using its production resources, television broadcasts and digital platforms to help M2Ü NYC share its story with millions of consumers nationwide. M2Ü NYC’s story began appearing on QVC’s and HSN’s websites and social pages in May 2022, and the company will be highlighted on air on May 3 at 1:00pm and 7:00pm ET on QVC and at 2:55pm and 8:55pm ET on HSN.
In addition, M2Ü NYC will debut its products through online retailer Zulily for the first time. In celebration of each featured heritage and recognition month, Zulily will be curating a shoppable event that includes products from qualifying Small Business Spotlight businesses. You can shop this month’s featured event, in honor of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month here through May 31st.
M2Ü NYC can also tap Qurate Retail Group team members for advice on a business issue through a virtual mentoring initiative.
