Alex KonradBig thanks to the @Forbes video team of @KLTaggart and Chad McClymonds for their help. And bigger thanks to Microsoft Teams for making it difficult to include my face in the video as the interviewer and sparing us all :)
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella sees a three-phase response to COVID-19, a "hybrid" future for remote work and high demand for developers in this exclusive video interview with Forbes.
Alex KonradI asked @satyanadella if Microsoft plans to follow @jack's lead and extend work-from-home to employees indefinitely after COVID-19. The CEO tells @Forbes that @github was already 70% remote and that Microsoft will emphasize a "hybrid" set-up moving forward
Alex KonradAhead of Microsoft's Build developer conference starting today, I sat down with CEO Satya Nadella for a video interview on software's role in COVID-19 response and recovery, Microsoft's work-from-home plans, what it's unveiling today and more for @Forbes

The firm outbid rival Benchmark, sources tell @Forbes -- and Marc Andreessen got Kevin Hart onto the buzzy social app.
Envoy CEO Larry Gadea is sure that offices will reopen post COVID-19. He's raised $20 million in new funds to build software to help.
Alex KonradEnvoy CEO Larry Gadea built a buzzy startup offering easy office visitor check-ins. Now he's raised fresh funds as part of a rush to build the tech to help offices safely reopen for workers in the wake of COVID-19.

Now CEO @lg says customers are looking to reopen. Now with a fresh $20M and up to $10M for acquisitions, Envoy is part of a rush to offer software to help. forbes.com/sites/alexkonr… tip @Techmeme
