"The best way to predict the future is to invent it.'' - Alan Kay
The Canadian startup community has come together over the past couple of weeks to support Canadian startups who are facing unprecedented challenges due to the pandemic.
As VCs, we’ve witnessed the tremendous strain this crisis has had on founders, teams and operations of startups across Canada. We’ve decided to come together under VCHOURS to offer a line of support to all Canadian startups who may need it, recognizing that many startups may not yet have advisors, investors, or other stakeholders to lean on.
With VCHOURS, founders and others in the startup community can schedule short one-on-one calls with any VCs committed to this initiative. We would love to hear your thoughts, challenges, and opportunities and share the lessons we’ve learned from working with our own portfolio companies over the last few weeks.
We are also going through our own challenges as an industry. As such, this is also open to our colleagues and peers in the venture community to connect and exchange ideas around the post-coronavirus world.
The Canadian startup community’s strength is built on camaraderie and cooperation. Together, we will come out stronger.
