Q.Impact of COVID-19 on Startups
Things are happening at an unprecedented level world over. From an investment standpoint, I think startups in the area of health tech will have it the best. The whole pandemic has shown the world the need to connected, safe and also educated. Tech is a great connector and if it helps lives being saved at low costs, it could be a game-changer. But overall it will be a wait and watch approach is what I feel.
The start-up vibe is built on that core team, that energy a and zeal a lot of which cannot be replaced with either tech or from work from home environments. It’s a huge distraction for startups especially running operations.
Startups will have to evolve and adapt. It will be interesting to observe how the start-up businesses innovate and also buffer funding tasks in their business plans for such contingencies. Engaging their customers in innovative ways in these times can make the difference between survival or shut down for a lot of them.

Q. How the COVID-19 have been impacting the economy and M&A scenarios in India?

These are testing times for leaders and no doubt that culture has never been as important as it is today.
