Navigating the Prevailing Winds of Change

Even though Dave Berkus has been an ABL Technology Member for nearly 32 years, he’s well-known to many of ABL’s Healthcare Members for his awe-inspiring financial accumen and success as a serial entreprenuer and investor in – and advisor to – over 200 startups. He’s also an international speaker, author of several books, weekly blogs, and for over 40 years, he regularly flew his own plane to work! In Dave’s book, Extending the Runway, he masterfully blends his “lessons learned” as an experienced pilot, executive, and investor, packing it with great advice for the leader of any kind of company, particularly those dependent on outside financing.

Meanwhile, our newest ABL Technology Member, Cynthia Nelson, President of NexGen Talent (pictured at left), recently shared with her fellow ABL-Tech Orange County Members the results of NexGen’s “Return to Work” Survey, reflecting the C-level responses from 1100 startups to Fortune 10 companies, representing most industries (except education and government). What I found most intriguing about these “real time” survey replies (less than 5 weeks old) is the sea change they represent for California businesses – particularly, for the healthcare industry.
