2021 is turning out to be a record-setting year for investment in VC-funded startups and private companies. This vast global liquidity has caught the eyes of non-traditional investors including sovereign wealth funds and limited partners, both of whom are looking to boost returns with direct investments. This makes it a buyer’s market for startups, and the best entrepreneurs have access to what seems like unlimited capital.

In an informative webinar hosted by venture capital firm Pegasus Tech Ventures and law firm Morrison & Foerster, partners of both firms will discuss:

  • How strategic capital is thriving in today’s venture environment
