In light of the World Health Organization declaring the ongoing coronavirus outbreak a pandemic, Combient Foundry is taking steps to ensure the health and safety of all Venture Client Cycle participants. Here are three ways we are approaching the situation.

We will complete the ongoing cycle on-schedule

To minimize the disruption to our participants’ calendars, we will be moving forward with the ongoing Venture Client Cycle on our planned schedule. Most of our meetings are already taking place online. For the ones that are not, we will be facilitating an alternative approach. We will be notifying you about these changes by the end of the week.

Foundry companies are committed to working with startups

As these are uncertain times, we would like to take the opportunity to reassure all participants that the Venture Client companies are committed to seeing the Venture Client Cycle through. The business teams are fully behind the Venture Client Cycle and will continue pursuing partnerships with startups now and in the future.

All of the Combient Foundry Venture Client Partnerships are paid partnerships. We believe now, more than ever, it is crucial to collaborate with one another on equal footing. 

Our China Venture Client Cycle also continues as planned

The Venture Client Cycle we launched in China in February is also moving forward as planned. Meetings are taking place between the Stora Enso and Tetra Pak teams, and the startup teams online and will continue to happen on the current schedule. We will let all participants know about any changes in arrangements, via email.

Please get in touch with our team in case of any questions or concerns you might have. You can reach us on foundry@combient.com.
