Sequoia India, together with founders from leading Indian startups, members of investment advisory firms in India, as well as independent advisors and supporters of the startup ecosystem, came together in March 2020 to launch the Action COVID-19 Team (ACT).

ACT’s mission is to provide guidance and resources to startup founders and employees, and empower teams through financial grants and mentoring to create large-scale impact in the fight against COVID-19.

Funds from this grant will go toward ideas that help reduce the spread of the disease, including digital tools, social distancing apps, contract tracing, telemedicine and education, and all ideas which can help India scale testing for COVID-19, including new testing protocols, multi-stage testing frameworks and scaling current PCR testing capacity.
