We have entered the third week of the nationwide lockdown with speculations of extension on this period, however, no official announcements have been made as of now. At a time when 1.3 Bn people are confined to their homes, the startup community has come together to fight against coronavirus.
From a coalition of 4 individuals on a telegram group “Startups Vs Covid-19” to a team of more than 750 individuals comprising founders, investors and other tech startup ecosystem stakeholders – the mobilisation of the startup community is exhilarating.
