2020 may feel so far like the entire year of living dangerously, but for many of us it has also been the year of working remotely. Led by the stick of COVID-19 as opposed to the carrot of the advantages of flexible work life, a lot of organizations, and also the men and women who power them, have only relatively recently started to get to grips with this concept. However, a few have had their finger on the pulse of computing and how that relates to enterprise productivity for years.
Come join us on Thursday, July 9, in Extra Crunch Live to listen Jason Green of Emergence Capital, one of the primary investors (and VC firms) backing and promoting a number of the largest startups in this space.
Extra Crunch Live is available only to Extra Crunch readers. If you’re not already an Extra Crunch member, you can join here.
For the uninitiated, the EC Live format is simultaneously direct and wide-ranging, an hour-long conversation that not only covers some of the biggest issues in tech, construction startups and investing today — and boy do we have a good deal of problems right now — gets to the heart of these, in a milder format that’s really fun to watch — as you can see from previous talks together with Sequoia’s Roelof Botha and Homebrew’s Hunter Walk. (See the entire program of Extra Crunch Live talks here.)
July 9 ought to be an especially good one since, well, Green is full of beans.
That’s to say, he has been very outspoken in the last few months, resulting in the (reassuring? alarming?) Fee for startups to just write off the last quarter and also concentrate on the future.
Sounds flippant? Not really. Green has years of expertise specifically in how they cross over, and to draw — a track record backing some of the startups of the decade + in the regions of business cloud computing and business productivity. They comprise Box, SalesLoft, ServiceMax, SteelBrick, SuccessFactors, Gusto (previously ZenPayroll) and Yammer, together with Emergence itself an early backer of Zoom, Salesforce, Crunchbase and Clearbanc.
For creators, other shareholders and anyone involved in any aspect of deal-making, especially for enterprise startups, it is a must-watch.
Join Jason and me next week. We are looking ahead.
