Workers and customers must wear face masks, adopt far more intense cleaning practices for shared reusable items like tweezers, and the services will be limited — no mouth or nose tattoos or piercings for now. The guidance on nail salons has bee...

Lo Toney has some ideas about how to (really) bring VC into the 21st century

Last week, we suggested that for a truly diverse venture industry, the limited partners who provide investing capital to VCs — institutions like universities and hospital systems — need to start incorporating diversity mandates into their work.

Given how fragmented the world of...

Second, they want an advantage that helps them acquire meetings. What the Research Says There is research that suggests that the very best time to ...

At the very least, however, it gave...
