The world is going through extreme economic hardships amidst the pandemic as a majority of countries are on the brink of recession.
In the U.S., unemployment numbers have hit record highs and many companies have entered into a hiring freeze.
The lockdown has exacerbated the retail apocalypse and big names such as JC Penny, Neiman Marcus, and Gold's Gym have filed for bankruptcies... while companies such as Microsoft have decided to close their stores altogether.
Join us as we talk to venture capitalists across the country to see what they are investing in during a time when previously low-risk investments are now high-risk.
We'll be talking about investment trends, what investors are staying away from, and what the future of investment will look like post-pandemic.
