Post-COVID Fund: Venture Investing in the Post-COVID World
Monday, May 4th, 3:00pm EDT

Hosted by Mike Collins, CEO and Anton Simunovic, CIO - Alumni Ventures Group
Moderated by Peter MacEwan, General Manager

Join Alumni Ventures Group for a webinar that explores how changes resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic will create profound change—as well as unique opportunities for new ventures that tackle these challenges.

COVID-19 will lead to permanent changes in the world. Existing companies will pivot and innovative ones launch to address our new reality. AVG’s new Post-COVID fund will invest in a portfolio of those companies that offer timely solutions and both near- and long-term growth potential. We believe it’s a chance to both do well and do good.

Our 45-minute webinar will invite you to:

  • Explore trends likely to emerge in the Post-COVID world
  • Hear about venture-backed companies already addressing this new reality
  • Learn about AVG’s Post-COVID Fund
