The coronavirus pandemic has brought uncertainty and feelings of isolation. But it also has shown some of our positivity and humanity. To quote one of my favorite Beatles songs: “I get by with a little help from my friends.”

We have shared our views on how to manage innovation during a recession and on how corporate VCs can respond to the current environment.

We have also shared practical advice including understanding valuation changes in venture capital and five transaction structures for mutual benefit between corporations and startups.

With unemployment rising, we will also post a weekly list of active job openings at the portfolio companies of Touchdown Ventures’ corporate partners, across multiple industry sectors. Please feel free to apply directly with any of these companies and to share this with anyone qualified that you think would be a fit.

Here is our monthly job update as of January 10, 2022:

1. Enterprise Technology Companies

2. Industrial Companies

3. Consumer Companies

4. Media & Entertainment Companies
