    What Do VCs Need to Know about Navigating 2023?

    After years of frenzied investments and soaring company valuations, venture capital investment levels are readjusting as businesses assess the current economic landscape. Now, VCs are left navigating persistent inflation, slowing growth, and rising geopolitical tensions. In this episode, we explore how to navigate these issues and the critical messages policymakers need to know now more than ever. 

    NVCA research director Shiloh Tillemann-Dick talks about the top things founders need to know about the market in 2023 and dives into the data from the recently released Q4 2022 PitchBook-NVCA Venture Monitor Report. 

    NVCA policy experts Justin Field and Charlotte Savercool look ahead at what the 118th Congress will likely focus on, the scary topic of SEC proposals, and how these will impact the venture industry.
