We have delivered multiple programs since covid began, including pivoting an entire accelerator to online format in March 2020. We have run several programs since as a hybrid virtual and face to face, which have been highly successful. If covid restrictions are enforced again, many of the face to face events planned can be delivered online, or delivered at a later date.
