On this episode of the Business Disruption and Resilience Podcast, GHJ Private Equity Expert and Guest Host Austin Hobson speaks to Robinson Bradshaw Partner Adam Berkland about what businesses at all stages need to know when preparing to receive institutional capital.

Based in North Carolina, Adam primarily works with startup tech companies in the Research Triangle. Many startups he works with are in cash-conservation mode. As businesses face inflation, rising interest rates and the rising cost of supplies and labor, many businesses focus on cost cutting, and B2B software-as-a-service companies are seeing that pressure on their bottom line.

Austin and Adam also discuss how the market for deals is transforming, why the talent shortage has hit North Carolina in a major way and why founders should start building their network as soon as possible, regardless of whether they need capital now.
