Today marks the end of my thirty-seventh week of working from home (mostly). Here are my takeaways from week thirty-seven:
- Thanksgiving – It was great to have time off. This year has been very unusual and Thanksgiving was no exception.
- Southeast ecosystem – I connected virtually with a venture capital fund and an accelerator this week. Both conversations were enlightening. I’m surprised there’s so much activity I’m unaware of. All signs are that the region is headed in the right direction.
- Fundraising activity –There’s been a lot of fundraising activity in Atlanta in the last few months. Before year-end we’ll see a few more deals. Acquisitions, private equity recaps, venture capital fundraising . . . I’m happy for these founders and their teams. We’re in uncertain times, yet investors are bullish on ownership in private tech companies. I’m curious about what the future holds.
Week thirty-seven was low key. The holiday was much needed. I’m glad I got some downtime and could reflect on the things I’m thankful for. Before I know it, Christmas will be here.
I’ll continue to learn from this unique situation, adjust as necessary, and share my experience.
