The COVID-19 pandemic has caused unprecedented business interruption across nearly all industries, with tech startups facing some of the greatest challenges.

Some startups are seeing dramatic revenue reductions because existing customers are either unable or unwilling to pay on time. Revenue is falling short of pre-COVID-19 financial projections because prospective customers are tightening their belts.

To top it off, insurers have been unreceptive to force majeure claims.
