We’re a quarter into 2023 and when it comes to funding, the pullback from tech continues. However, just like winter provides the time and space to reflect and renew, a market downturn is the best time for heads down building without all the distractions of a super bull market.
With that said, here’s a selection of updates and progress from the V1 family over the past months. And with the emergence of spring, there’s a lot of good news to set up a great year of building.
