The world of work is being profoundly affected by the global virus pandemic. The crisis has already transformed into an economic and labor market shock, impacting all businesses regardless of their size. During this difficult time, it is important that jobs are preserved, enterprises remain sustainable, workers and their families affected are protected, in particular the most vulnerable, and those in the Indian economy.
Startup Mumbai has been monitoring and collecting key information resources available on the functioning of enterprises in the crisis, including its impact on startups, responses by startups, and government policy measures to support affected startups. These briefs will be published regularly to provide updated information on actions taken to support startups.

INTRODUCING BUSINESS LUNCH
Business Lunch is a virtual networking service that’s looking to help users navigate finding new connections inside specific industries. Business Lunch focuses on setting up a handful of meetings for users that have a specific goal in mind. It’s aiming to be your warm intro and connect you with other users via email that can assist you in your professional goals. When you’re on-boarded to the service, you are asked to highlight some “objectives” that you might have and this is where the app really makes its goals clear.
Options include, “raise funding,” “find a co-founder or partner,” “explore other companies,” and “brainstorm with peers.” These objectives are pretty explicit and complementary, i.e. for every “raise funding” objective, there’s an “invest” option. There isn’t a ton being asked for on the part of the user when it comes to building up the data on their profile, Business Lunch is hoping to get most of the data that they need from the rest of the web.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?
We love small businesses
Small businesses contribute greatly to the local economy, as they typically purchase products and services locally for their business, and personally shop at other locally-owned businesses. There are additional benefits to encouraging entrepreneurship and locally-owned businesses. Locally-owned businesses may be less vulnerable to national economic downturns, although they often have fewer resources to sustain them through tough times.
Thirst for learning
Our most valuable asset is wisdom gained through our appetite for knowledge and the transformational experiences that we share with our peers. A thirst for learning leads to an open mind. A thirst for learning leads to an open mind, and an open mind leads to greater opportunity.
