At Golden Seeds, we are full of admiration for our many operating companies who make difficult decisions every day, often with incomplete information.  They need to respond quickly, while at the same time examining their options.  Many of our readers are entrepreneurs or those who actively support and invest in them, including the 300+ Golden Seeds members who have moved swiftly to support our companies. We are learning that there are heroic measures by many and multiple silver linings. Our deepest gratitude to those who support our mission of funding and enabling women-led companies.

Below, see an article written by Golden Seeds Managing Partner Peggy Wallace about lessons learned in the last recession that can be applied today.  And see a summary of an excellent presentation by Dr. Joanna Massey about coping with five generations in today’s workplace.

We are proud to share three recent blogs about Golden Seeds companies.  Consortia Health is a Texas-based company focusing on women’s health. Terecircuits is a Silicon Valley company transforming the landscape for electronics manufacturing. Madorra is a medical device company in Oregon focusing on women’s health.  

Wishing you good health in this difficult time.
