What Startups I Would Like To Bet In 2021
Emerging trends and how in 2021, we might build a better normal.
2020 is just behind us, and it has been a tough year for everyone. Actually, for those like us who invest in Silicon Valley early-stage companies, things have been a bit different. We observed valuations decreasing by 20–25%, and it was easier to access fair deals. Still, even if working from home is a habit that I developed over the last seven years, not meeting anyone face-to-face has been challenging. A significant element in our job is creating new relationships, and even if we always worked remotely, a situation like the present one has been challenging for us.
