Founding, Funding, and Running a Startup in a Time of Economic and Financial Market Uncertainty
Founding, funding, and running a startup is challenging at any time. But in a time of economic and financial market uncertainty, a startup’s challenges increase.
In this talk, Jason Schenker, the Chairman of The Futurist Institute and President of Prestige Economics, will address key risks and challenges for startups, including the recent failure of Silicon Valley Bank.
Mr. Schenker's key talking points will include the implications for startups of high inflation, elevated interest rates, downside risks to business valuations, the war for talent, Cold War Two®, supply chain risks, tech layoffs, and SVB contagion risks.
Mr. Schenker will discuss M&A strategies, the importance of cash flow, cost leadership, talent management, and operational resilience.
