Day in and day out we''re lucky enough to work with founders who lead and lead tirelessly. In response to the current pandemic, companies from our current cohort and alumni are activating in incredible ways. Check out some of their stories below.
As New Orleanians, DOCPACE, a Health-Tech Startup in VILLAGEx, is offering their service to help local healthcare providers navigate this uncertain time and help #StopTheSpread of the COVID-19 virus in our community. DOCPACE can minimize the risk of spreading COVID-19 by texting patients protocol and wait updates to reduce crowds in the waiting area, as well as send pre-screening and drive-thru testing questionnaires to patients via text messaging. DOCPACE will be providing this as no cost over the duration of the pandemic. To learn more about DOCPACE, visit their website.
Alum NOLA Couture has switched their primary focus from creating clothes for men, women, and children, and have since repurposed their operations to create surgical gowns and masks for the healthcare workers suffering due to the shortage. They will be using their factory, as well as accepting at-home volunteers, to help meet the growing demand for protective gear! If you''re interested in volunteering (and have the sewing skills!), contact NOLA Couture at firstname.lastname@example.org.
