CORONAVIRUS - COVID 19 - PANDEMIC
The world is currently experiencing a major economic disaster as a result of the Coronavirus COVID-19 Pandemic. Businesses are closing, suspending or restricting operations as social distancing is mandated by governments to mitigate the impact of the Pandemic.
As demonstrated by other disasters such as 9/11 and hurricanes, businesses will suffer an interruption or decrease in revenues with a reduction of profits and possible losses that commonly lead to the failure of those businesses.

The Capital Innovation and Technology Institute plans to develop and publish a series of Guides that will assist small businesses in accessing capital from government disaster relief programs with funding provided by investors.
We currently project that the Pandemic will peak by the end of May 2020 and that the demand for our products and services will peak by the end of July 2020. During this time, small businesses may experience losses equal to or greater than four months of their current operating costs. With 'social distancing' programs implemented by the government, the duration of the Pandemic may be extended.
We are currently engaged in ASAP operations in the identification of the disaster relief government programs, in the development of Guides, in creating all documents/communications that promote the Fund offering and in the sale of the Guides, the buildout of infrastructure to support operations and the recruitment of qualified capital coaches.
