What Is Going To Happen In 2017

A VC : Venture Capital and Technology

Feld Thoughts

If you are growing at a rate of less than 50% year over year, you should consider viewing 2017 as the year of flat headcount. As budgets are settling down and getting approved for many of the companies I’m on the board of, I’m seeing a general trend of much less headcount growth in 2017 than in 2016.
