Hello, and welcome back to Equity, the startup business podcast, where we unpack the numbers and nuances behind the headlines.
Here’s where we come in:
- Week Three deals, from copyright claims with “-GPT” to Lift, a wallet designed to make your local cafes more loyal, to First Republic Bank’s tanking stock price, and all of our most memorable ideas reported six weeks ago.
- Fintech venture layoffs, and the startup hiring situation in general. According to Mary Ann Schoep, we can find out how many employees a company needs and why.
- Earnings! Alex has spent more time than is healthy recently reading financial statements from technology companies large and small. The result? Good news for beginners.
- We end with a note on coffee. How does coffee fit into fairness? Well, when a venture is funded and grows, we don’t care if it’s powered by beans or AI.
We’ll be back in your ear again on Monday for the weekend’s headlines. If you missed us by then, follow us. @EquityPod And check out Alex and Natasha’s cams on TechCrunch!
