Are we returning to the office? Or is the future remote?
At a16z, as at many other companies, we view the changes the pandemic brought about as an opportunity to rethink how we work and what’s best for our team today and in the future. As part of this exercise, we also surveyed 226 CEOs in our portfolio — representing early and late stage startups across bio, consumer, crypto, enterprise, and fintech — about their future location and remote work plans. In this post, we highlight what we learned from that survey, including some of our favorite insights from founders (which we share as direct quotes so you can hear them in their own words), as well as how we are thinking about our own return to the office and remote work.
