The emergence of the novel coronavirus has led many tech leaders into a massive struggle on the ways to solve and respond to the pandemic crisis. Tech companies are now having to step up to the plate and help play a part in the coronavirus pandemic response, tapping into their wide-ranging resources to help get a handle on the spread of the virus and to fill in gaps in their appropriate response.

Jarret Winkelman quotes from this episode of the Powderkeg Podcast:
“I had no idea how to go out and raise capital or work with other companies and started that process in 2016, 2017. And have really found much more of a tech startup community in Colorado than we ever knew existed. And I think that continues to evolve today.” — @JarretWinkelman on @PowderkegCo o
“I think there are a few things you know, one is that as we cities and technology continue to expand, expand, and we get into smart cities and sensorization, and kind of the ever-evolving, there’s an app or widget for that movement. Our tool really represents a way to bring all those data points together.” — @JarretWinkelman on @PowderkegCoo
“We really see an opportunity where we can again help a lot of these large companies and manufacturing oil and gas those types of industrialized organizations to better manage their internal emergency response processes and give management and senior leaders better visibility.” — @JarretWinkelman on @PowderkegCo o
