VENTURE CAPITAL NAVIGATING THE POST-PANDEMIC SATELLITE VC LANDSCAPE
Venture Capital proved remarkably resilient as the pandemic raged across businesses in 2020, although seed-stage and first-time fundraisers were disproportionately hit. What can investors and satellite industry executives expect as economies recover, and how should they prepare for a ‘new normal’ that could follow? How has the pandemic changed the investment landscape for ventures at various funding stages, and the prospects for exits that will help drive pipelines forward? This panel will discuss the trajectory of key VC trends, how satellite investors and businesses can overcome operational and other challenges in this environment, and the opportunities that COVID-19 has created as digitization and other shifts are accelerated.
