Maelle Gavet, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Techstars, has lived and worked through economic downturns, both as a start-up entrepreneur and a technology company executive, and she told the Managing Editor of GeekWire that she doesn’t like what’s on the horizon.
“The economy is melting, and specifically in the tech industry we’re looking at a massive market reset,” she said in this article. But Gavet, a former Priceline and Compass executive who became CEO of Techstars last year, also sees opportunity. “We help founders build sustainable, resilient businesses and prepare them to go raise their next round,” she said. “Our formula is even more relevant during an economic crisis.”
