Quick Tips for Entrepreneurs during COVID-19

In light of recent events, we have to face fundamental changes in our everyday lives. For entrepreneurs around the world, this means tackling uncertainties and facing challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic.

At enpact, we take this situation seriously. At the same time, we remain positive.

Here are some tips for Founders to consider:

  • Revisit your cash flow and cut out unnecessary expenses.

  • Involve your employees in the planning process and be mindful of their concerns.

  • Engage with your community, take part in discussions within your industry and explore collaboration as a solution to overcome challenges.

  • Don’t underestimate the importance of disinfecting and deep cleaning your workspace; whether that’s your office, your own startup space, or your home.

  • Embrace everything that remote work has to offer. There are countless resources online on everything from time management, to holding events online, to even building your company’s work-from-home policy. Make use of them!

  • Stay healthy and safe; your personal safety and that of your loved ones comes first, always!

Lastly, while staying informed is crucial for your employees and business, it is important to stay conscious of the sources you are following. Dedicate specific times of your day for following the news to avoid unnecessary stress or feeling overwhelmed.

Stay tuned on our social media channels, as we are sharing resources and tips regarding safety advice, tools for remote work, and more in regular updates. We’ll also be sharing a comprehensive guide over the next few weeks with our best practices for remote work and managing a decentralised organisation.

Please contribute to the discussion by sending us your best practices or tips through info@enpact.org!
