COVID-19 Resources From the High Alpha Portfolio

by Emily Brungard - Marketing Analyst

It’s an understatement to say that COVID-19 has disrupted the way we operate businesses, function as a society, and generally live our lives. Companies have made quick transitions to remote work, businesses are reevaluating their models, and people are dealing with and reacting to ever-evolving healthcare recommendations. 

We’ve hosted weekly calls with the CEOs of our portfolio companies for the last several weeks, and we’re inspired by the ways these leaders are supporting their internal teams — as well as their customers. Their teams have been hard at work assembling new product offers to help their customers, building resources for newly remote teams, and offering extended free trials. 

We’ve tried to compile all of these resources across our venture studio portfolio in the list below. These resources touch a range of industries, from manufacturing and mobile messaging to sleep and sales. 

Anvl: Free Trial and COVID-19 Safety Templates

Anvl’s mobile workforce safety application and communication platform allows companies to engage frontline workers and organically drive culture changes. They’ve created free templates in response to the current environment and safety regulations. In addition, they’re offering a free trial for companies who want to implement new safety measures. 

Attentive: COVID-19 E-Commerce Trends & Tactics

Attentive, a personalized mobile messaging platform, has built an in-depth content hub for e-commerce marketers.

If you sign up to be notified when Attentive updates their data, they will donate $10 to Feeding America — it’s a win-win.

Base: Resource Hub and Extended Free Trial

For many Executive Assistants, work has become a lot more complicated over the last several weeks. Base, the first software solution for EAs, has built a resource hub for EAs on a variety of topics, including “wow-ing” their executives, transitioning to a remote work environment, operations and workflows, and self-care.

Base has also extended their free trial. Their platform helps assistants focus on what matters most, and is currently enhanced by comprehensive resources curated especially for EAs in this moment.
