In conversation with Mike Butcher (TechCrunch), Lydia Dishman (Fast Company) and Stewart Rogers (Grit Daily), we will discuss what is going on with the startup world and tech media right now. The world as we know it is shattered, but many tech businesses are surviving (and some are even booming). Tech industry and startups need to understand, what is the best way to collaborate with during and after the pandemic.

Key topics:

  • What is the situation in media and particularly tech media right now?
  • Mike Butcher would comment on the state of the tech industry.
  • Will the whole tech startup ecosystem be affected or will remain mainly the same.
  • How will collaboration between business and tech media change? Will the new formats emerge? Is there any advice that you can share with the founders?
  • What could be done together to aid those who suffered most from the COVID and governments' protective measures?
