COVID-19 Strategy Clinics: Get Help From Our Investors

We're offering 24 startups the opportunity to have a 30-minute video call with one of our investors to get startup advice on how best to navigate the COVID-19 crisis. Flipping the script on the traditional pitch dynamic, you’ll have the chance to lean on our investors' expertise to sense-check or get unstuck on your strategic approach to surviving the crisis.

How it works

This is not a pitch, so no need to treat it as if it is. (We won't be.) Our investors will simply be there to help. This is an opportunity for you to be candid about any roadblocks your startup is coming up against, and workshop solutions to overcome them.

To get the most out of the session, stick to 1 or 2 challenges that your company is experiencing and make sure to communicate all critical pieces of the puzzle, so we can get into the meat of your business quickly. You've only got 20 minutes, so keep introductions and any additional information to a minimum.

We'll be accepting startups based on where we can add the most value. Unfortunately due to the volume of applications we receive, we won't be able to provide specific feedback on every application, but you will receive a response on whether or not you were selected for a slot in the Strategy Clinics.

When are they being held?

  • April 16th 2020.
  • May 1st 2020.
  • May 7th 2020
  • May 22nd 2020
  • June 5th 2020
  • June 19th 2020

We'll be holding clinics with 4 entrepreneurs on each date. If your application is successful, we'll be in touch to let you know the date of your session.
