Tech Winter Is Coming! How Do We Prepare For It? [Chills 92 with Jeremy & Jeraldine]
Winter is coming… tech winter, that is. Previously on a hiring & spending spree, we are now seeing layoffs among tech companies as they become more conservative in their operations. Is the tech winter a cause for concern, or are there rare opportunities to be seized in this unique situation?
In this Chills episode, we discuss how employees & investors in the tech industry can ride out the tech winter. Which jobs are susceptible to layoffs during a tech winter? What can tech employees do to negotiate their stay? Is tech winter a good time to buy tech stocks?
Join in the tech winter discussion with our guests Jeremy Au, venture capitalist from Monk’s Hill Ventures, and Jeraldine Phneah, account executive at Spot.io where she helps startups extend their cash runway by optimizing their cloud spend.
