VCs seem to agree that 2023 is going to start out rough, but by the end things should... be ok?

Fred Wilson in What Will Happen In 2023:

There is a pattern to much of this and it is that 2023 is going to be a tough year for most but those that get through it should find themselves in a good place, with leaner cost structures, less competition, and healthier employer/employee dynamics. Surviving is thriving in 2023.

So to everyone who is reading this, Happy 2023. Buckle up, hang tough, and be smart.

Hunter Walk in 2022’s Startup Layoffs Will Result In 2023 Startup Wind Downs:

If 2022 was the year of the startup layoff, 2023 is going to be the year of the wind down. It will suck — for team members, for founders, for customers of these companies, and for their investors — but by the end of the year we’ll have gotten through the toughest part of the correction.
