Cocid-19 Fund

Smart, Simple Venture Investing to Address the New Covid-19 World

Investment Thesis

Venture investing in companies addressing Covid-19 near- and long-term impacts

We invest in ventures that are both promising businesses and either directly or indirectly address the multiple impacts of the virus in healthcare, technology, services, data monitoring and analysis, learning, payments, communications, entertainment, and much more.

  1. The Covid-19 global pandemic is going to change our world – forever – with numerous industries reshaped, priorities shifted, and unicorns created
  2. Great unicorn companies are created in times of upheaval
  3. Many of the Q1 best-funded venture rounds went to companies that are addressing coronavirus problems and opportunities (PitchBook, Best-funded Startups in Q1)
  4. AVG is already seeing companies in our portfolio flexing to address the cornoavirus impacts, including Kinsa, Dataminr, Freshly, Tembo Health, Oura, SonderMind, Heal, RapidSOS, E25Bio, and many others
