Are you an entrepreneur? Is your business in need of support, financial or otherwise, to help mitigate the impact COVID-19 has had on your organisation?
If the answers to those questions are yes, then the Covidcap.com is quite possibly the most important resource that you need to know about. It is a COVID-19 capital relief resource for entrepreneurs stretching across the four corners of the globe developed as part of the World Economic Forum (WEF) COVID Response Alliance for Social Entrepreneurs, which brings together 60 global organisations to support social entrepreneurs.
This vital resource is managed by The Center for the Advancement of Social Entrepreneurship (CASE) at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business. CASE prepares leaders and organizations with the business skills needed to achieve lasting social change with help from a small but active team of global consultants and volunteers.
What is Covidcap.com?
It is a searchable database of more than 1 trillion USD in relief aid for entrepreneurs, small businesses, and non-profits. The database has more than 1.300 unique resources, spanning across 62 countries in six continents and offers both financial and non-financial support to organisations in need.
What kind of resources are available?
The database currently has a total of 1.551 financial and 133 non-financial entries.
Financial assistance typically takes the form of either grants or loans for a variety of sectors including healthcare, education, social safety net services, etc., while non-financial aid is very diverse and includes access to informational business administration webinars, moral support, and mental health services, as well as free access to technological platforms to name a few.
Resources are being added daily, so please check the database often for new entries.

Ensuring the Future of Social Enterprises—Together
Many social enterprises have been able to pivot their services to better capture their target audiences, or new ones, in this COVID-19 economy, but there are still many who are at risk. Hopefully, with the arrival of Covidcap and other coronavirus relief funds like it, our social impact community will receive the support they need to continue services for vulnerable populations everywhere.
At Euclid Network, we support any measures that provide funding or support for social enterprises and social entrepreneurs through these difficult times.
