When the pandemic hit, Mr. Kirsch put his regular business in the hands of his co-founder and fully dedicated himself to finding an effective treatment for COVID-19. Using his engineering background, he did extensive research and consulted leading medical experts on the front lines of the pandemic — contacts from his past 20 years of funding medical research for glaucoma, diabetes, and cancer.
In April 2020, Mr. Kirsch has founded COVID-19 Early Treatment Fund that is composed of experts from a wide range of fields including medicine, technology, philanthropy, and business. The organization has quickly become the world’s leading fund focused on early treatments for COVID-19 that leverage repurposed drugs which are proven to be the shortest, safest, and the most effective path to reduce hospitalizations and save lives.
