The Covid-19 pandemic took many enterprises by surprise. The problem was sudden, demanding new changes to be implemented as soon as possible. Entrepreneurs could sense the need to fight upfront with new approaches.

But how did they come to know about it?

For instance, In this era of online meetings where many users suffer from technical problems, some people saw an open market and tapped into its benefits. At the beginning of the pandemic, a group of tech entrepreneurs held group chats on the Telegram app to understand the wider response to the crisis. These conversations resulted in many innovative solutions to fight the virus with the help of technology. Venture capital firms that provide funds to start-ups came forward to help tech entrepreneurs. They launched the ACT (action covid-19 Team) grants of INR 1 billion to give the right implementation to the ideas to combat corona.

Hence, those entrepreneurs established a business that complemented the situation of the pandemic. They created solutions to fight the covid-19. For example, prevention of the corona spread, disease management at home, scaling and testing, support for mental health among other solutions.

With sharp focus and attentive skills, these start-ups made a move in the new budding market and are progressing in time.

Furthermore, retailers should know their financial needs and what role they have to play in their community.
