The Impact and Opportunities of COVID-19 on Startups

On June 4th, STATION F and 120 partner VC funds released a comprehensive study on the impact and opportunities of COVID-19 on startups.

We knew from the beginning of the Covid-19 crisis that there would be a huge impact on startups. Some businesses have come to a standstill while others have taken off. Many talk about new trends like remote fundraising or remote work. For startups, the impact has not been uniform and it was important for us to dig deeper.

We surveyed over 950 startups from various industries, at various stages of development, and across 5 primary geographies – the US, the UK, France, Germany, and Israel – to get a comprehensive overview.

Dive into the results on and take a listen to our latest podcast episode to make sense of the data that we found with three partner VCs:

– Pierre Entremont, Co-Founder and Partner at FRST, based in Paris

– Marguerite de Tavernost, Investor at Cherry Ventures, based in Berlin

– Chris Smith, Managing Partner at Playfair Capital, based in London
