Hello friend --


We are into the fifth week of #WFH and we continue to bring you resources and webinars for you to stay productive as you shelter in place. Here is a robust list of resources that our team has put together for you to take advantage while you work/study from home:




b1_standup.pngBixel Morning Stand Up

The Startup LAunch team is hosting DAILY Bixel Morning Stand Up meetings at 10 a.m. to help our startups keep their momentum by growing and building their businesses with virtual classes in several key areas. This week for Money Moves Monday, we featured Taj Ahmad-Eldridge, Senior Director of Investments at LACI, Shopify teaching us how to set up an online store, and our advisors Sebastian De Vivo and Jocelyn Graf helping businesses navigate nuances of EIDL and PPP. Tomorrow we are hosting an AMA session on tackling local, state and federal COVID-19 resources. It is not too late to join us and RSVP!
