Dear partners, investors, entrepreneurs and other friends,
In these difficult times with unprecedented measures being taken worldwide due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we hope that you and your families are safe and healthy. We believe everyone is doing their best to contribute to the efforts to contain the virus spread, making both personal and business sacrifices.
With the world slowing down, there are severe consequences for most companies and the global economy. We are currently doing our best to minimize the impacts, progressing wherever we still can (luckily, working remotely is one of the luxuries of our industry) and supporting our portfolio companies on daily basis.
Despite these extraordinary circumstances, we are sending you this shorter version of our newsletter featuring some of the developments of the past weeks. After all, staying positive, balanced and ready for action is important right now.
In this issue, you can read about the 3 Key Learnings from our portfolio company SALESmanago by Founder CEO Grzegorz Błażewicz or tune into the second episode of our podcast series featuring Pete Flynn from Candela Capital talking about the world of LPs and fundraising. You should also check out NEXD’s awards for Pepsi ads, Omniconvert’s eCommerce Growth Online Summit and Tresorit’s ranking on the Financial Times 1000 fastest-growing European companies list.
Beside good health, we are wishing you a lot of strength and endurance in the weeks ahead.
