Friday Letter: A look ahead to 2021

As we close out the year, be sure to visit us online and open your daily VCJ email newsletter. We'll see you in the new year with plenty of news and content, including our Rising Stars feature.

Hi, everyone, and welcome to my final Friday Letter of the year.

This is not to say we’re done delivering news and content. I urge you to check in on the morning email newsletters and come visit our website daily through the end of the year. We have original and year-in-review stories planned for the next two weeks to close out 2020.

But the email newsletter is skipping the next two Fridays. It will resume the normal morning weekday schedule in the new year. And we’re all hoping for a better 2021.

January will kick off for us with the debut of our second annual Rising Stars feature. Our debut collection of 40 under 40 in January was our most popular online feature of 2020. And we suspect that the roster of the next generation of stars we unveil online on January 4 will also rank high in popularity.

We have other content planned to kick off in early 2021, including our annual LP Perspectives study and our usual array of news and features, based on exclusive interviews with GPs and LPs.

So as I bid adieu, everyone, I hope you all stay safe and sound. Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Also, let me know what you want to see more of in the new year. Drop me a line at and tell me whatever is on your mind. I’d also be happy to set up a call on Zoom or on the phone in the new year if you’d prefer.

I look forward to hearing from you all in 2021.
