Recessions & Venture Capital [Webinar]

How can founders, VCs, and LPs manage risk and conflict during a recession? Experts from Adams Street Partners, Brooklyn Bridge Ventures, Neal Gerber Eisenberg, and Preferred Return discuss.

In good economic conditions, companies, VC funds, and funds' LPs all have fairly well-aligned incentives and priorities, but recessions can create conflict and change the distribution of risk. We discussed how founders, VCs, and LPs manage risk (and conflicts) in a downturn.
