RESPONDING TO COVID-19.

We are closely monitoring the spread of COVID-19 here in the US and around the world. For the safety of our community, programming for Cohort 09 is entirely remote. Our robust programming will continue online and startup teams will not be required to travel. Our partner, Urban Us, has put together a resource to help founders respond to emerging challenges resulting from COVID-19, including team management, remote work and fundraising.

URBAN-X portfolio companies are doing their part to respond to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Changes in urban design, healthcare infrastructure, and emergency response are accelerating at hyper-speed, so creative shifts are needed to rethink real-time planning models, operational models, and interaction patterns.
