hello and welcome back to The Exchange’s weekend report. If you’re reading this on australiabusinessblog.com and want to get the letter in your inbox, head here.
Your regular host Anna Heim is off this week for a well-deserved vacation, so I’m stepping back into my old role as a newsletter writer. Honestly, it’s nice to write this note, so thank you for having me.
Today we take a look at the good news from the venture market we covered this week, but with an added global perspective. We’re broadening our lens a bit to get more general numbers to better understand whether the good news from the United States holds up elsewhere. Call it a look abroad in honor of Anna. To work! — Alex
