We hope you and yours are all safe as we all work together to save lives. We were taken by this powerful image above. It’s almost as if the sky itself is paying tribute to healthcare workers here in NYC and around the world. We’re far enough into this pandemic to see healthcare workers who had the bravery and dedication to strap on the gear and walk into COVID wards, get sick themselves, suffer through the disease and now go back, strap on the same gear and walk back into those same hospitals to save lives. Truly incredible.  

The statistics are horrendous, but the trend lines show early signs of hope. It will take time and sacrifice to get to the new normal, but we believe in New Yorkers. We will build back better.  

Here are some good reads and some updates on our portfolio companies.
