Discover Roam: The Revolutionary Flight Deals App that Could Save You Up to 83% on Your Next Trip!

Life update: I’ve been working on a passion project in my nights and weekends which is a flight deals app; would love for you to give it a try! Some deals are amazing, e.g. 83% off round trip Newark – Nashville for $24 (normally $145).

It’s called Roam and is unique in 3 ways:
1. You don’t have to enter specific dates. Search any day that has the best deals, or specify certain days of the week such as weekend trips.
2. Our algorithm searches daily for your trip (4,000+ flights/day across 12 months of results)
3. Add custom filters for flight deals you care about (no alerts for flights you would never book)

Let me know if you have any questions!

Surviving the SVB Collapse: Impacts and Implications on Startups, Hiring, and Venture Capital

Be prepared for all the potential implications of SVB collapsing…

– How many of your software vendors will still be in business in a few weeks?

– Even if you don’t bank with SVB, how will your customer churn be affected by this if you have startups as customers (that may go bankrupt)?

– Will there be a firesale of startups to bigger companies b/c they can’t make payroll?

– How will this change hiring when potentially thousands of employees are laid off in 1-4+ weeks?

– How will future VC investing change if much of their dry powder money waiting to be invested is gone?

– How will startups fare if their runway is cut in half (or worse)? Even if a startup used 2-3 banks and one of them was SVB, that could still dramatically cut their cash runway.

– How will LPs of VCs (universities, nonprofits, pension plans, etc.) be affected by some of their returns being wiped out?

What are other implications?

My heart goes out to all those affected…
