Hey friends,

As we continue to look at the impacts of Covid on our tech community, a lot of ideas come up on the future of education/learning and the future of work. So many of these "future of" ideas are now the reality and are getting stress tested.

I am seeing a lot of new startup ideas being hatched and it is inspiring to see a whole new generation of entrepreneurs be born ready to solve new problems.

What are you seeing? For the investors, are you taking more pitches in these areas? Is there more interest in funding Ed Tech and HR Tech because of the situation? Curious to hear your thoughts.

Hope you continue to stay safe and healthy,
