How B2B startups are faring under the COVID-19 crisis

We have all felt the blunt force of this new coronavirus, aka, COVID-19, that descended upon the entire world this year.  Desperately trying to keep this vicious infection at bay, countries around the world have taken such measures as shelter-in-place and laying restrictions on businesses, causing disruption to the economy and dealing a major blow to businesses all over the world.  Further, as a result of social-distancing, B2B companies have been forced to rethink “the way we work,” something they have taken for granted in the past: to work in a physical office.
As all business practices heretofore are being reviewed, it will be a challenging time for startups. Startups are facing new challenges, with the task of creating new services and products that will be adopted as the new standard in the post-COVID-19 era.
Already, some innovative technologies, services, and products from various startups are being adopted and utilized.

For this year’s summit, we are pleased to have Mr. Eric Yuan, the CEO of Zoom as our speaker. As everyone knows, Zoom’s popularity skyrocketed amid the current crisis, as people had to go to work, school, churches, etc., online.  We will ask him for his insights on what changes are taking place globally.

DNX Presents

From intimate dinners to large conferences,
DNX event series are designed to bring together our community to learn from one another.



Founders have many things to consider to run a company. Bites and Insights is a series of intimate get-togethers that bring founders and investors in a round table style where they can network, compare notes and find the right partners.

Insurance X


We’ve seen early stage start-ups stuck in a Product-Market Catch 22. As an early stage VC focusing on B2B startups, we help them solve the P-M Catch 22 even before we invest in a company. We bring startup founders and our corporate network to a conference style event to help them find the customers to kickstart their business. Previously, we’ve had Insurance x Autonomous Vehicle themed event in Silicon Valley to get startups, corporations, and investors to discuss the future of Insurance at the time of autonomous vehicles.



More than 90% of our investments in Japan are B2B SaaS companies. Akira Kurabayashi with 15 years of experience investing in SaaS and leads our B2B SaaS investment, sits with the experienced entrepreneurs and investors to provide actionable advice to early stage entrepreneurs.
