We understand that it isn’t business as usual.  COVID-19 has presented several unexpected situations to entrepreneurs and business owners that just couldn’t be predicted.  Information is changing daily and we wanted to provide a place where you can access resources to help you make the best decisions for your company.

We are creating content to keep you informed.  We’ve also gathered the most up-to-date and useful resources to help you take action from sources we respect and founders, companies, tweets, and presentations that we trust.  

This list will be updated as more information is shared.  If you have any questions for us or want to share information that you’ve come across, reach out to us at

For founders and business owners who would like to speak to someone about advice assessing the different government financial aid packages available, please feel free to contact us.
