An update in a critical moment

An update in a critical moment
By Michael van Lier • Issue #1 • View online
Hi there, 👋
It’s been some time since you last heard from us via this newsletter. We hope you are doing well in these critical times. Via this message, we would like to share our thoughts on the current pandemic and give you a small update on our startup studio. With the COVID-19 virus outbreak evolving quickly, we must all do our part in slowing down the spread. Because of this, our studio team and ventures are currently working from home. We also decided to cancel the first edition of our House of Founders event. 
To spark some light onto this challenging moment, behind the scenes at Builders we’re working on exciting things. We’re in the middle of re-branding our studio and creating our first startup studio fund. As strange and confusing this moment is, we must do everything we can to make the most of it.
While the situation is very unfortunate, we’re seeing a lot of businesses making the transition to remote work relatively easy. This showcases the importance of software to empower the modern-day workforce, especially in critical times like these. We are now more than ever, motivated to live up to our focus to enhance life at work and empower people at work globally with our future ventures. 
We’d be curious to hear your view are on the current situation and how it will impact the life at work — Let us know at
