hello and welcome back to Impartialitya podcast about the startup business where we unpack the numbers and nuances behind the headlines.
This is our Wednesday show where we stick to one topic, think about the issue and reveal the rest. This week, Natasha as well as Alex asked: What is the current state of the fintech startup market after years of fundraising boom?
The episode was inspired by a variety of news including but not limited to Potential estimated haircut of Klarna, Apple BNPL announcement, Partial Brex retreat in the market as well as Retrenchment Wealthsimple.
Another reason why we talk about fintech is that after attracting just a huge chunk of venture capital went into the sector in the last few years. And this means that a lot of startups are involved when we discuss the fintech niche. It’s not just a few unicorns and decacorns, but a whole group of companies that are now stuck waiting for a resurgence in the venture capital market.
With Affirm and Klarna showing how much fintech revenue prices have fallen, what lies ahead? How worried should founders be? We delved into all this and more!
