On May 21 at 3pm ET/12pm PT, we’re hosting an Additional Crunch Live session with Steve Case and Clara Sieg of Transformation. This chat is the current in our growing series including noteworthy investors, technologists and business owners. Previously, TechCrunch editorial personnel sat down(virtually, obviously) with Cowboy Ventures’Aileen Lee and Ted Wang, Sequoia’s Roelof Botha and Mark Cuban,
among others. There’s a lot to discuss with Case and Sieg, and Extra Crunch members are motivated to come with their own set of concerns to ask these distinguished financiers. Transformation is understood for its wide variety of financial investments, inside and out of the Valley, so we’re curious how the company is resolving the COVID-19 crisis.
Steve Case was a co-founder of AOL and led the company as it became the internet giant of the ’90s– and did so outside of Silicon Valley. He’s long been a champion of startups from other areas since of this. The company still has an existence in Silicon Valley, and Clara Sieg has run that effort given that 2012 after joining in 2010.
We wonder how Case, Sieg and other partners are advising startups to weather this storm. With financial investments throughout the country, Revolution remains in an unique position to have a holistic viewpoint on how the COVID-19 crisis is impacting start-ups.
Are they still funding startups today? What metrics are they looking for? What regions of the country do they see less effected than others and which are hardest struck?
We have questions and we hope they have responses.
