Many of today’s biggest companies stemmed from major economic downturns, Microsoft amongst them. Phil Dobbie asks Jonathan Marchbank, an investor in early stage investors, whether we’ll see that this time. Maybe not immediately, because investors are keen to see innovators face to face before parting with cash, but there are changes to our way of life that provide opportunities for new business ideas. Also today, we look at Matt Hancock’s plans for the NHS and ask whether the chairman of KPMG being pushed aside was just a little too ‘woke’. And a look at Friday morning’s papers too.
