The Down Round, which was released for viewing yesterday, is a six part series looking into the so-called “burst of the Silicon Valley bubble.”
Following some huge successes from Silicon Valley over the past decade or so, The Down Round is hoping to draw light on some of the key challenges presenting themselves to companies and what the future may hold.
TechCrunch explains more about each episode: “The first episode examines the balance between fear and greed that investors are experiencing in the uncertain market.
“The second episode explores the process that startups go through to raise funding and whether or not this funding has dried up in Silicon Valley.
“The third episode shows the perils of the startup world and their effect on founders and investors.
“Episode four looks at the effect that the uncertain funding market has on the job market.
“Episode five examines one of the hottest topics in Silicon Valley: real estate. What are the effects of the booming real estate market on the dried-up tech market, and vice versa?
“The sixth episode examines the future implications of the softening market and how the entrepreneurial spirit and determination to build success out of failure defines Silicon Valley.”
The full six-part series is now available on TechCrunch here and will be coming to its YouTube channel by 6th November.
