They told stakeholders last week: “The U.S. is poised for stronger economic growth in the 2nd half of 2021 than we’ve seen in decades.” Sequoia added: “In many ways, COVID pulled forward the future that technology companies have been building. Behaviors that would have taken decades to go mainstream were normalized in a matter of weeks. The question is: which behaviors will persist over the next decade, & which will be fleeting?”
