Ominous news out yesterday from premier venture capital firm Sequoia Capital:
Sequoia Capital, a top Silicon Valley venture capital firm, issued a "black swan" warning on Thursday about the Covid-19 outbreak. In a memo to Sequoia founders, employees, and CEOs of its portfolio companies, it provided "guidance on how to ensure the health of their business while dealing with potential business consequences of the spreading effects of the coronavirus." The last time Sequoia sent out a warning like this, it was titled "RIP. Good Times," and sent to its portfolio companies with some tips for surviving the 2008 financial crisis. Sequoia calls Covid-19 "the black swan of 2020." It predicts a severe economic shock will strike the global economy, advising firms in its portfolio to prepare for the worst; "We suggest you question every assumption about your business... Having weathered every business downturn for nearly fifty years, we've learned an important lesson — nobody ever regrets making fast and decisive adjustments to changing circumstances," the memo said. "In some ways, business mirrors biology. As Darwin surmised, those who survive 'are not the strongest or the most intelligent, but the most adaptable to change.'"
