Travel’s Path Forward: Startups and Investors

The coronavirus pandemic is turning the entire travel industry up-side-down, including the venture-backed travel startups that have business models facing a surprise stress test in these times. As VC deals are drying up and the sectors the tech startups serve are scrambling to cut cost, many companies that were seeing high growth only a few months ago are quickly being forced into survival mode. What can be done to survive in the short-term? How are VC investors viewing this crisis, advising startups, and considering where future investments may occur? 

Please join Skift editors and research analysts, along with VCs and startup founders, for this dive into the state of travel startups today.
