It would be nice if you didn’t talk a little bit about Elon Musk.



Hello and welcome back to Equity, the startup business podcast, where we unpack the numbers and nuances behind the headlines.


Don’t forget that the code “EQUITY” can save you money on breakout tickets and access to TechCrunch+. And it makes us look good here on the show!


We’re planning to show the show in short order down the road, but don’t worry about that this week. Service will continue as usual until we start disruption next Tuesday!

Today we’re into the weeds:

  • Markets: Stocks were down in most parts of the world, though they were somewhat mixed in Europe. Crypto is mostly flat, with XRP bucking the trend with interest. The Bloc reports that crypto volumes hit a record high in September, which could bode well.
  • Start: Clerkenwell Health has raised a couple of million pounds to trial alternative medicine for mental health conditions. We are excited about this. And Trendsi just raised a $25 million Series A, which is no small deal, as we expect to see smaller early stage rounds this year. Good on Trendsi!
  • Quick shots: Kanye West and Elon Musk are dominating the news cycle again, this time after the former’s anti-Semitic posts on Instagram and Twitter got him in trouble. Meanwhile, Musk welcomes you to Twitter. Also, Tizen is not dead, and PayPal is having a hell of a start to the week.
  • don’t forget: Next week we will have the first day of Riot! Come on!

More to come on Wednesday and Friday. i can’t wait!
