How Startup Innovation Can Drive Economic Recovery and Resilience
/ / /

COVID-19 revealed the vulnerability of our economy: millions lost jobs, faced eviction, and fell into poverty. Looking to the future, what role can startups play in building greater resilience to economic shock?

ResilienceVC will invite any early-stage startup working on post COVID-19 recovery; specifically in the employment, housing, or fintech/financial health space to send in a video submission showing us how their business answers this question.

Approximately a dozen finalists will be pre-selected to pitch to a panel of impact VC judges during this session, with no more than 3 minutes / 1 slide per startup covering their business model and impact on resiliency. Each startup will then receive feedback on their pitch

The following entrepreneurs will be presenting:

Manoj Jonna - Ramped
Eric Chebil - Cher®
Clare Herceg - Let's Get Set
Neeraj Mathur - SavingOak, Inc.
Mercedes Bidart  - Quipu Bank
