Virtual communication in the age of physical distancing

The Covid-19 epidemic is now a Global issue and everyone is affected one way or the other.

The Covid-19 epidemic is now a global issue and everyone is affected one way  or the other. The majority of our programs are now being held remotely and the  rest are in the process of migrating online too.

As most of us are remote working and in-person events are on hold, we want to  continue to share some of the insights and sessions that we usually do for our  founders with the wider startup ecosystem so that we can help and support  entrepreneurs around the world.

We are launching a few initiatives this week so we can share these more easily  with you and help the tech ecosystem in every way we can.

1. Online events: You can now meet the Antler local teams, hear from our  advisors and other experts via our online events. We will be hosting several  sessions a week and you can sign up for these here. In our events, we will  explore topics such as innovating in uncertain times, mental resilience, best  practice for remote working, navigating startup pitfalls, etc.

2. Antler VC Cast: We will be launching our podcast this week and you can find  more details about it here. In the podcast, you will hear from leaders in the  tech community and get unique insights and inspiration. We started recording  some of these before the virus. For the new episodes, we will ask our speakers  about how they find resilience and what keeps them going in tough situations.

3. Antler on Medium: We have also started an Antler medium account so you can  hear from our founders, team and more. We are starting with a series called   "Finding the Upside" where we share some top tips we have collated for  entrepreneurs.

4. Regional Newsletters: If you are interested in getting specific content  about the tech startup ecosystem in one of our locations, sign up to one of  our local newsletters:  Amsterdam, London, Nairobi, New York, Oslo,  Singapore, Stockholm, or Sydney.

We want to hear from you so do email us at to let us know about  topics you would like us to cover or speakers you want us to invite for our  podcast and/or online events.

Do stay safe and make sure to prioritize you and your family"s health and  safety and make practical arrangements to be able to live and operate through  this situation.
