The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on employment. As we watch an increasingly large number of employees be laid off — employees that are members of the Minnesota tech and startup communities — we’ve decided it’s time to do whatever we can to help.

That’s why we’re giving free three-month tech.more memberships to anyone who has lost their job because of COVID-19.

All you have to do is send an email to [email protected] with the subject line “tech.more COVID-19” and we’ll get you set up as a tech.more member at zero cost for three months. No questions asked. Your free membership won’t be identifiable and your email will be completely confidential.

Because of the sign-up process, you’ll need to provide a credit card number, but you won’t be charged for the first three months of your membership. Once the free membership period has expired, your account will be auto-renewed and charged (you’ll receive a warning before this happens), but you are free to cancel at any time.

You can read more about the features of the membership here.

We know this is only a small offering, but the more we stay connected, the more we can hopefully help each other. We think tech.more provides a little more of that connection.

Again, if you’ve lost your job because of COVID-19 (or if you have any questions), send an email to [email protected] with the subject “tech.more COVID-19.”

Stay healthy. Stay safe. Stay strong.
