Succeeding in large round fundraising or M&A in the COVID recession

Many of today's successful growth company CEO's have never had to raise larger (eg $30m+) rounds in a recession. Despite the deep pool of money available today, it is harder, and takes more preparation, to get a deal done.

I recently led a CEO workshop on this topic, sharing the slide deck here. The actual workshop involved a lot of detailed discussion, happy to answer questions via LI or directly. Please like and/or share if you find it interesting.
