A | DURING THE COVID-19 CRISIS, INVESTOR CAPITAL HAS CONTINUED TO FLOW INTO PRIVATE COMPANIES. I plan to stick to as normal a schedule as possible at JPM and the Biotech Showcase, even though they will be done virtually. I would suggest three steps. First, set up the meetings that you were planning as if you were there in person. Second, schedule enough time to have substantive conversations, not just the quick 30-minute flybys that we normally schedule. Third, be vigilant about the proper follow-up, just as we do when we have actual in-person meetings.
