The Covid-19 pandemic brings unprecedented challenges for businesses of all sizes.  For startups, the speed at which they learn is a critical factor for success. Therefore, abundant access to insights, opportunities, and networks can be the key difference between a healthy startup ecosystem and one that stagnates. Within a startup community, entrepreneurs,  investors, and corporations all play important roles in the transfer of intellectual capital through constant interaction, free-flowing information, and iterative learning.
