Scottsdale tech firm LeadMD is working with Invest Southwest to put together a new fund to help affected small businesses, while Chandler tech company MST Solutions LLC is paying for, buying and dropping off needed items for the nearby senior community.

LeadMD, a performance marketing consultancy, is partnering with Invest Southwest, the nonprofit behind the annual Venture Madness competition, to launch the AZ Local Impact Fund.

LeadMD is starting the fund by putting in $50,000 and encouraging other local companies to participate and help out as well with financial donations.
