We continue to make investor introductions and provide ongoing access to experts on the SOSV teams SOSV also maintains a vibrant, Slack-based peer-to-peer founder community and programs private founder-focused events covering topics from legal to marketing We also provide our startups visibility through public franchises such as the SOSV Climate Tech 100, the SOSV Human Health 100, and the SOSV Climate Tech Summit SOSV is for life
