COVID-19 Response Resource Hub for Startups

Last updated: April 9, 2020

Today we released an extensive new guide for startup leaders navigating the COVID-19 crisis. We spoke to First Round's partners, current CEOs and folks who have built and led companies during previous economic recessions. In this guide, we weaved together their advice, in addition to other helpful resources and materials, to help answer some of your most pressing questions. There were a lots of links, tools and templates shared in the guide, so we thought it would be be easier to gather everything in a central hub.

Below, you'll find all of the additional resources we've included within the Field Guide - from First Round's original Scenario Response Planner, to hiring support for candidates and companies to recommended articles, videos and surveys covering how to handle the COVID-19 crisis.

Be sure to check out the full field guide (and subscribe to the First Round Review newsletter if you haven't already!)
