A Washington Post Live event recently explored the flurry of entrepreneurial activity that took place during the COVID-19 pandemic, the role of technology in that boom, and the lasting impact it will have on the economy.
The discussion featured Steve Case, chair and CEO of Revolution, Heather Boushey, a member of the White House Council of Economic Advisers, and Deborah Gladney and Angela Muhwezi-Hall, co-founders of QuickHire.
