Coronavirus Resources for the Social Impact Sector [UPDATED 10/26]
The coronavirus pandemic is forcing businesses everywhere to make difficult decisions to adapt to the crisis – and the stakes are particularly high for companies in low- and middle-income countries. On top of the multiple challenges they already faced, these enterprises now must make urgent decisions that will likely have long-lasting ramifications—not just for themselves, but for their employees, suppliers, investors and, ultimately, their customers.
At NextBillion, our mission is to deliver actionable information and analysis to serve the development through enterprise space. To advance that goal, we’ve launched this resource page to keep our readers informed about emerging opportunities, trends, events and other developments that can help impact-focused businesses and initiatives weather these challenging times.
Below, you’ll find links to:
- Resources – e.g.: funding opportunities, strategies for adapting to the crisis, etc.
- Events – including virtual events related to the pandemic, and conferences and other development-focused events that have shifted to an online format
- Analysis of emerging trends, both on NextBillion and other sites
- Breaking news from other media sources on how the business and development sectors are responding to the crisis
We hope this information will help you navigate the difficult and often confusing months ahead.
We’ll be updating this page regularly, so check back often—and please share any opportunities or important developments that may interest our readers by emailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: COVID-19.
Thank you, and stay safe.
