Investments in startups have dropped sharply during the COVID-19 outbreak and are unlikely to recover for the rest of the year, according to a new report. But venture-backed startups are stepping up with offers to help with the COVID-19 outbreak. These include Berkeley-based education payments platform company Curacubby Inc., which is giving schools free access to several of its tools free until at least July 1.
Curacubby is a one-stop online account management solution for childcare centers and preschools, K-8 and childhood enrichment, after school care, camps and sports programs. The solution was designed by preschool owners and parents to offer program administrators an easy, secure way to handle student enrollment, generate invoices and process payments from a computer or mobile device, removing the headaches of manual data entry and invoice tracking. Additionally, Curacubby enables email communications to keep parents informed and engaged while offering them the ease and convenience of making online payments from anywhere. With minimal cost to business owners and tools to grow revenues, the solution is proven to offer a fast ROI. More information is available at Curacubby.com.
