Nauta’s COVID-19 Startup Checklist

As the COVID-19 crisis was unfolding, there were many questions we were asking our founders in order to identify the support that was needed and how we could best help them as a fund.

When the corona pandemic first emerged, everyone at Nauta rapidly moved to help our portfolio companies, assess what support and guidance we could provide, while collectively trying to get our heads around the wider implications of our new reality.

As the crisis was unfolding, there were many questions we were asking our founders in order to identify the support that was needed and how we could best help them as a fund.

But while we have been in this global crisis for a couple of months now, we understand that many startups are still under enormous pressure. From navigating the health implications of the COVID-19 virus to themselves, their families, and their employees, to the ever-changing legislation and initiatives in response to the outbreak.

With that in mind, we’ve published Nauta’s COVID-19 Startup Checklist to support the wider startup community. Based on a collection of the questions we have been asking our portfolio companies — as well as links to useful playbooks, toolkits, templates, and insights — we hope this resource can help early-stage founders not only survive but thrive post-COVID-19.

It’s also important to note that we understand that the questions (and answers) will vary from a company to a company, and therefore should be viewed as such.

Follow the links below for each section of the checklist for ease:
