Before we start, it’s important to note that luckily OurCrowd Summit took place before the terrible COVID-19 outbreak. Now the whole world is suffering from the virus and hard to imagine how dangerous it would be to gather 23K people now… And back then, OurCrowd 2020 managed to host almost 23 thousand attendees! And last week Israeli government shut schools, universities, banned indoor gatherings of over 100 people, urged people to avoid unnecessary gatherings.
We’ve been lucky enough to be at OurCrowd Global Investor Summit 2020 to meet all those talented and professional people, to listen to experts and to understand that the world’s future will be saved by those tech innovators and investors who decided to invest their money for good. Because it’s business to drive the future and to help the world to survive. And everything will be ok!
Getting down to business, as we promised when conducting our survey, UppLabs likes to highlight some of the most important OurCrowd 2020 takeaways.

It was the real window into the future that showed us a lot of solutions to ‘impossible’ problems. Startup technologies showed their ability to save lives!
"If people are working from home, use this time to plan and do creative work. If you are forced to spend more time with your kids and your wife, turn it into an advantage, it is not a curse," - said Jonathan Medved (OurCrowd CEO) about how OurCrowd is dealing with the corona crisis to Elham Nasser-Eddin, a news reporter at CTech by Calcalist.
“This is not just a battle for China, but a world battle,” Medved said. “The tech community must take responsibility to be on the front line in fighting coronavirus. We must come up with solutions – not just travel bans – to stop these types of epidemics.”
UppLabs totally supports Jonathan’s opinion! Moreover, watching the business stopping the activities due to the remote work, we prepared the material about how to work with remote teams, which will be soon shared on our blog. The world will recover, the question is, will you be able to get your business back on track fast? The economy is on a temporary halt. But life’s not.
At this point, our experience might help you dealing with remote work while COVID-19 outbreak.
