Topic: How COVID-19 changes the VC investment landscape with regards to mobility, IIoT, and sensors
COVID-19 had and still has an enormous impact on our lives, on different industries and the economy in general. After the first half year of “sheltering-in-place” and dealing with “the new normal” – let’s take a look back. How did the pandemic influence the venture capital industry in general? What trends did emerge or got accelerated due to changes in behavior of people, organizations, and industries? We will give some insights what influence the pandemic had on the venture capital industry in general and on the VC investment space in particular with regards to topics like mobility, sensors and industrial IoT.
