Webinar: The evolution of US VC during the COVID-19 crisis

August 5 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

The COVID-19 crisis has caused the US venture capital ecosystem to suffer from the worst economic downturn in almost a century. The pandemic has disrupted everything from small businesses to the largest corporations and savviest investment firms—and across alternative asset classes, exits are slowing, valuations are softening and liquidity is drying up.

Join PitchBook and NVCA for a panel discussion on how investors are responding to the current market environment as well as what opportunities and pitfalls the pandemic has introduced to the US venture landscape.

Featuring industry experts from Silicon Valley Bank, Certent, NVCA and PitchBook, the webinar will cover top trends highlighted in the Q2 2020 PitchBook-NVCA Venture Monitor, including the latest in:

  • Fundraising
  • Deal flow
  • Exit activity

We’ll also look at what lies ahead for venture capital in the context of COVID-19 and continued market volatility.
