Tuesday, July 14th, 5:00 PM EST

Panelists: Triphammer Ventures Managing Partner, Steve Greenberg ’89 MBA’90 and Principal Wesley Yiu ‘11 Moderated by: Peter MacEwan, General Manager – Alumni Ventures Group

Please join us for a discussion about Venture Capital in a turbulent market. We will discuss how we see VC changing in light of COVID-19 and the associated economic disruption and public equity market volatility. We will also take questions from the audience. Topics to be covered include the impact on deal sourcing, due diligence, expected returns, and the market for future M&A and IPO exits. We will share what we are seeing in the market, what we have heard from other VCs, and how some of our existing portfolio companies have seen significant tailwinds due to COVID-19.
