Managing GP, Marlon Nichols, “I recently had the privilege of joining Brian Hollins, CFA on his podcast, The Road Untraveled. The podcast was created to gather advice on navigating the #COVID19 pandemic from investors at several top VC firms. I enjoyed the conversation and hopefully shared some things that will be useful to founders as they manage through these unprecedented times.”

Road Untraveled: Marlon Nichols from MaC Venture Capital on companies that thrive in this environment, the importance of still setting goals, and how to support diverse founders right now.
1. Companies that can thrive in this environment: health tech space, remote work, collaboration, government/reg tech.
2. Companies will have to make hard changes but need to keep an eye on how the business is performing and whether you are still achieving the short term goals you set out to accomplish.
3. Diverse founders are historically underfunded, but once funded, tend to outperform non-diverse teams by 30% on average. Investors should continue to find ways to source and support diverse teams much like the efforts of the ‘Launch with GS’ team.
