Whether it’s in our health, finances, work or relationships, fallibility and imperfection are unavoidable aspects of being human.
Yet we often react to our inevitable human failings with self-criticism and negativity, which lead to stress, anger, anxiety, and depression. The antidote to this is self-compassion – something we can cultivate so we face our ‘failings’ with kindness, patience and understanding. This helps build positive and productive relationships with ourselves and others.
As we begin to emerge from these unprecedented times, Yorm Wijngaarde from Dealroom.co will lead us through recent trends in European venture capital. We will also discuss how funds have been deploying through this period given accelerated trends in technological innovation.
