This afternoon, we’re chatting with Steve Case and Clara Sieg of Revolution as part of our new interview series, Additional Crunch Live. Topping our program, we will talk about tasks– in Silicon Valley, on the coasts and in the heartland. The technology sector is suffering through a contraction caused by the COVID-19 international health crisis, and layoffs are striking almost every company. We hope you’ll join the conversation. Throughout our hour-long chat, Bonus Crunch members can submit questions directly in the Zoom Q&A. Steve Case has an unique viewpoint. He co-founded AOL and guided the business through the first dot-com bubble, where AOL became a dominant force. Later, during the 2008 recession, Case led financial investments with his then-new firm
Revolution . Likewise, Clara Sieg has managed Revolution’s Silicon Valley efforts for the last eight years and can straight speak to the existing turmoil. While at Transformation, she helped the company raise 2 considerable funds, including its $450 million Development fund and its first institutional fund of $200 million.
Together, Case and Sieg are well-qualified to offer recommendations on negotiating the current environment.
Since its creation, Revolution has aimed to invest in startups in and out of Silicon Valley. With the COVID-19 crisis, this model matters more than ever. We wonder to hear the set’s take on business experimenting with permanent work-from-home policies and what this suggests for real estate costs in centers like San Francisco and New York. Do they think the pandemic will develop a lasting effect on the technology sector’s workforce?
This chat is the latest in our continuous series of conversations with noteworthy investors, technologists and entrepreneurs. Previously, TechCrunch staff sat down (practically, naturally) with Cowboy Ventures’ Aileen Lee and Ted Wang, Sequoia’s Roelof Botha and Mark Cuban, among others.
Join us today at 3:00 p.m. EDT. It’s going to be a great time.
