Hello, and welcome back to Equitya podcast about the business of startups, where we unravel the numbers and nuances behind the headlines.
This was Y Combinator week in a sense, with the well-known accelerator showing off hundreds of startups over a two-day period. We had some thoughts on that. But! There was much more to it Mary Ann, Natasha And Alex to dig in, so we’ve got something for everyone today.
Here are the show notes, enjoy!
- Please support our first sibling podcasts Found and Chain Reaction in the Webbys! They deserve it, and we vote for them too.
- For our deals of the week, we had: Monument and Tempest shared patients’ private data with advertisers, Acorns buys GoHenry, and Alex has notes on how the venture capital market is developing in the first quarter.
- Looking for all the Y Combinator notes your heart desires? You can find our favorites from days one and two on those links, and read this Natasha piece on why the bay is back.
- We also took the time to discuss the term “demo day” for an event where there are no, you know, demos.
- Latin America was back on the show thanks to Mary Ann, which served as a good reminder that we haven’t spent enough time watching the region lately.
- We concluded with Frank, a candid conversation that frankly made us shake our heads. Fraud is bad, and almost twice as bad when it comes to startups, where trust plays such a crucial role.
Equity will ring in your ears again on Monday morning, cheers until then!
