Festivals of the future ‘won’t be limited by time and space’: CEO

Post-pandemic music and theater performances are likely to use a hybrid model, according to the chief executive of one of Singapore’s largest arts centers.

Yvonne Tham, CEO of Esplanade, told CNBC’s “Street Signs Asia” that a mixture of in-person and streamed performances are set to be common in the future.

“Many artists are really open now to what’s known as hybrid, which (means they) may be performing in a particular space in a particular time, but how does that performance have an afterlife? And that’s a question we’ve been asking ourselves even as we’ve been producing lots of digital programs,” Tham said on Monday.

“We’re going to see festivals in future that are not just limited by time and space, therefore what goes on to complement that live experience in the digital space becomes quite important,” she added.

Pre-pandemic, around 3,000 performances took place annually at the Esplanade and it

Schedule super quick meetings just to check in with colleagues. Read more. And try to fit “moments of transition” into your daily schedule.

Those are some tips from Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella to help manage well-being with the new WFH lifestyle.

Nadella spoke this week at the Wall Street Journal’s CEO Council. He said he’s focused on three major considerations of how the nature is work is changing amid the pandemic: how collaboration happens, how learning happens inside companies, and how to ensure employees aren’t burning out.

The last point has become even more important over the past several months as workers conduct multiple meetings per day via video and don’t have the same interactions with colleagues at a physical office. Microsoft studies show that people are now working after hours and on weekends more frequently, and that remote work is

Q&A With Robo Global CEO Travis Briggs on the Future for Tech | Financial Advisors

The technology sector has always been popular among investors. The favored FAANG – which comprises Facebook (ticker: FB), Apple (AAPL), Amazon (AMZN), Netflix (NFLX) and Google (GOOG, GOOGL) – seemed unable to do any wrong in the eyes of investors. While the economy reeled from the global pandemic, valuations on the big tech names continued to climb higher and higher – until September, when double-digit losses to Facebook, Apple, Google and Tesla (TSLA) took about 5% off the Nasdaq.

Talk has turned to a potential tech bubble, but one month’s decline is not enough to bring valuations back in line. The Nasdaq is still only around 750 points below its all-time high at the start of last month. September marked an overdue correction, but the question is not just what is happening with the tech sector now; it’s what will the future bring for tech?

Why the CEO of a $1 billion startup chose debt capital over VC funding

  • In February, Quantum Metric CEO Mario Ciabarra was fielding calls from investors at a rapid clip and getting unsolicited term sheet offers that valued the company at $1 billion. 
  • The term sheets offers slowed once the coronavirus hit but his company kept booming, growing annual recurring revenue at 70%, he told Business Insider.
  • By June, VCs were calling again, but the valuations were lower, even though revenue-under-contract had grown, said Ciabarra. 
  • So he decided not to take on a new round of funding yet. Instead, he opted for a $25 million loan from Silicon Valley Bank until he could secure a venture funding round at the terms he wants.
