Hello and acquire behind to Equity, TechCrunch’s try capital-focused podcast where we empty a numbers behind a headlines.
This week we once again had a full organisation on set: Matthew Lynley, Katie Roof, and myself. And even better, we were assimilated by Sarah Tavel from Benchmark, who helped us unspool a subject or three.
And topics we had. This being gain season, we had small choice though to speak about during slightest one open company’s results. Obviously we picked Netflix, a organisation whose batch has left parabolic as a cashflow has changed in a conflicting direction.
But as we discuss, in a epoch of gigantic income for land grabs, because delayed down?
Next adult was Twitter, from that a bird has flown a nest right into a arms of SoFi. Yes, SoFi is picking adult Twitter’s COO for a CEO role. Regular listeners will know because SoFi, a heavily saved unicorn, needs a new CEO in a initial place.
Next adult was a try world. How most income did VCs disburse in 2017? Quite a lot as it turns out. In the United States and the world, a numbers were utterly vast — annals given a dot-com boom. (More here if we are so inclined). We also noodled over a ICO landscape, including a Telegram offering.
All that and it turns out that Lyft is not woke. Alas.
And one final thing. Equity is recording a live episode on Feb 6 during SaaStr, that is cool.
