Venture Capital in Times of COVID

  1. Fewer deals and longer financing rounds: Times of economic uncertainty breed slow decision making. Investors are leaning towards a more conservative approach.

Presently, there has already been a slow down in deal flow, with investors decreasing the rate of capital deployment into new investments.
