How your portfolio companies can continue to “build” despite the macroeconomic challenges of the era

— Ben Horowitz

For the past several weeks across VC Twitter, much has been written and much pontificating has been done about what it means to be a “wartime CEO.” The question isn’t complex. Most businesses in this era of uncertainty have a singular mandate: survive.
