Hello, and welcome back to Equity, a podcast about the startup business, where we unravel the numbers and nuances behind the headlines.
This week Mary Ann, Natasha And Alex got straight into it – may the power of tech news stay with us, because wow, we’ve never been this busy!
This is what we started:
- An update on the collapse of a startup banking partner that wasn’t the first and probably won’t be the last.
- A section devoted to the disappearance of Poparazzi and a Databricks acquisition (refers to who can guess how we moved from one deal to the next).
- Next, we talked about Finix’s latest announcement to take on Stripe, before talking more about the rise of down rounds.
- We ended up with Bluesky. Although some of us feel gray about it. And anyway, this piece from Morgan Sung will make you think smart about the new Twitter competitor started by the old Twitter boss.
Equity will be back before you know it, but in the meantime, follow us on Twitter @EquityPod.
