Andrew Boston, Partner, Founders Circle Capital

Learn how Andrew focuses on building the network and skill sets of his portfolio company founders and how the secondary market is addressing opportunities in a COVID19 environment.

Key Takeaways:

1. Getting founders in front of successful, experienced leaders who have led teams through tough times can be very helpful as they tackle unprecedented times especially given many of them are facing a recessionary market for the first time.

2. The secondary market will likely slow down for some time, but is not directly correlated to the VC funding environment which will likely see the full impact of COVID19.

3. Really understand the impact of a RIF, as they are challenging and can often hurt morale. Be honest as a leader and share the uncertainty with your teams.
