PIVOT and RAMP Up, an extension of the Regional Acceleration and Mentorship Program (RAMP)  worked to meet the changing needs of startups and entrepreneurs given social distancing requirements and the economic fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic. This pivot consisted of a robust content management system, the development of an online mentor support network, and a new “Exit RAMP” program providing ongoing business assistance and connections to resources for RAMP alumni.
