We hope this message finds you and your family safe. Thankfully the TVP team and our families continue to be well. 

As we await the gradual reopening of our economy and reflect on our collective situation, we know the only true constant is: change. This includes change for the better.  NYC was the epicenter of the Covid-19 outbreak, so we feel it’s logical that NYC will also be the epicenter of innovation in a post-pandemic world. That innovation is most likely to be led by technology, so all of us in the tech industry and in particular in NYC can do our part to help.  

It will take time to get to the new normal, but we are focused on what’s ahead.

Here are some good reads, updates on our portfolio companies, and open roles.
