We believe the current market environment is a Crucible Moment that will provide challenges but also opportunities for all of you. Many legendary companies are forged during challenging environments as competition thins, real businesses get built and the opportunity for innovation is seized by those who see it.
We shared this presentation with Sequoia founders in May, and are now sharing it publicly with the wider startup community. Whether you are a CEO, operator or an aspiring founder pondering what it will take to build a successful company in a rapidly changing business climate, we hope this will prove a useful toolkit. No matter your role, the key to thriving in the next period is confronting reality, and acting decisively to adapt.
