It feels like the perfect storm of disruption and uncertainty. First we had Brexit, then the Pandemic, the War in Ukraine and the Crypto Collapse. Now we have a UK heatwave that has never been seen before (since records started). All of this is shaping up to be an economic crisis, with energy prices at an all time high, inflation and the cost of living also providing extreme pressures. The economy is like a volcano waiting to explode.
This volatile environments put extra pressure on investors, both angel and VCs. Some, as they did at the start of Covid, will look to stop investing in new startups and focus on looking after and protecting their current portfolio of companies. Others, have to invest in new businesses, but the deals will be harder to find and less favourable to the founding team.
This said, we know that economic downturns are the perfect cauldron for innovation and the next wave of successful startups to be formed.
What this means its that startup founders need better support networks to help them position their business in the best possible light, to spot opportunities that arise in these changing times, and to help them engage with investors in a way that is engaging and sets you apart from the competition.
