Date TBA

When times are tough, we store cash! But research indicates the most successful companies who emerge from a recession balance strategic investment and operational efficiency. For Venture Capitalists, could economic downturns present unique opportunities to reap discounted market share, and can diversity mitigate risk and drive outsized returns? Gain a distinct perspective from three black female powerhouses who oversee a16z’s TxO fund and Venture Capital Partnerships for Google across the US and EMEA, as they present inspirational vignettes of startup and VC innovation in a downturn. Founders and Investors will leave with an understanding of strategies, resources and funding available to not only survive today, but emerge as successful leaders tomorrow!
