SVZ Startups Respond to COVID-19
This week marks one month since the Social Ventures Zone began operating virtually, opens in new window and remotely in the wake of COVID-19 and physical distancing rules. One month may not seem like a very long time, but during these past few weeks many startups and organizations have found themselves reflecting on their purpose and how they can serve the community during this difficult time. How can we use our privilege, resources, and unique tools to alleviate the many challenges that have risen as a result of this new normal?
Startups at our Zone are no exception. At the Social Ventures Zone we have been working closely with our startup teams to help support their new COVID-19 initiatives, campaigns, fundraisers and new ways of doing their work so they can grow their social impact.
Our startups lead impact in various industries. Here are a few updates from SVZ companies working on COVID-19-related initiatives to support local and global communities.
The SVZ is thrilled to be supporting organizations with social purpose at the core of their business and we're proud of our startups who are solving various probelms during this time and focusing on people. We are currently accepting applications to our Spring cohort. To learn more or to apply, click here.
We would also like to thank all essential workers on the frontlines during the pandemic, ensuring our communities are safe, protected, fed and supported.
