How do startups deal with inflation, SVB, and a depressed investment climate?

Some might say this is the worst time to be a startup founder. We are jumping from one crisis to another and VC investments have not only slowed down but have seen a drastic decline in the last 12 months. How do founders deal with this situation? This session will be all about how to build relations as a founder and still access capital as well as how you can survive this winter, from extending your runway to key partnerships you have to build.
