Alumni Ventures Group has opened a new fund focused on investing in entrepreneurial companies working to shape and accelerate the world’s recovery from the Covid-19 crisis.

The Post-COVID Fund will invest in ventures which, either directly or indirectly, address the impacts of the virus and are able to demonstrate resilience in the face of its associated challenges. Target sectors include healthcare, technology, services, data monitoring and analysis, learning, payments, communications, entertainment, and others.

Alumni Ventures Group CEO Michael Collins said: “We believe this pandemic has changed our world forever. Trends will accelerate. Whole new markets will emerge. Industries will be reshaped, and new approaches taken as we start to tackle the problems and opportunities inherent in our post-Covid world. Out of this crisis, we expect to see dozens of new market leaders created who will be attractive investments in both the near and longer term. We think it’s an excellent time to be a venture investor focused on this new reality.”
