COVID-19: Startup Resources from the NEXT Community

At NEXT, it is our mission to support our community of 600 entrepreneurs and all Canadian startups in any way we can. On a good day, it’s hard being a founder, so we recognize just how challenging this new set of circumstances must be for our intrepid Canadian entrepreneurs. To play our part in ensuring our entrepreneurs can stabilize their businesses and then thrive when we once again attain some normalcy, we’ve put as many measures in place to help out. Here, we are sharing a list of resources for startups, sourced from across the startup community and informed by our network of founders, academics, NEXT team and corporate partners. We hope to arm you with the tools you need to move through this trying time with us, so that we can emerge on the other side stronger, together.
