Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.
In the Coronavirus lockdown we’re seeing trends that will establish the next cycle of startup innovation.
While already underway, there’s an accelerating shift to digital.
Startups in this area will find investor interest if they can provide the following:
Online businesses where you can work from anywhere.
Evergreen products that are always in demand.
Efficient delivery of products and services both online and offline, such as the internet or delivery to the customer’s doorstep.
Examples of this include:
Local restaurants moving from in-house dining to curbside delivery.
Local businesses move to sell online rather than in the store.
Instruction such as education and physical training delivered online.
Students moving from physical classes to online instruction.
Shopping is moving from the physical store to online.
These trends were underway before but are not accelerating.
