About this Event

Startup Investing Climate and Lessons for Investors, Directors and CEOs

Dr. Ronald Weissman, Chairman of the Band of Angels Software Group and member of the Board of Directors of the Angel Capital Association.


Ron will review the angel and VC fundraising climate for startups, especially in the area of semiconductors.

  • How does the 2020 COVID crisis compare to earlier dot.com and Lehmann crises?
  • Post-COVID, has there been a decline in funding? If so, which sectors are doing well?
  • How do 2020 valuations compare with 2019? What’s the outlook for “Zoom deals,” where there is no face to face contact with management?
  • Has investor behavior changed? And how long do investors believe the crisis will last?

After surveying the current funding environment, the presentation will include a question and answer session with attendees, to discuss the lessons for investors, Boards and CEOs in navigating today’s landscape and preserving “good governance.”
