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. Since the team is on hiatus this week, we decided to replay an old but prophetic episode from earlier this week. In February, Natasha as well as Alex asked: What can startups learn from the rise, and now from the difficulties of Hopin? For companies that have grown like weeds, what’s next?
Hopin was one of the first technology companies carry out layoffs in 2022; and as we said then, while it’s perhaps a very visible canary, it’s hardly the only startup to have taken the COVID-19 economic turmoil to new heights. Tell us how outdated the episode is and are you on a team reckoning or a team re-adjustment?
The market is changing. And while Hopin has grown rapidly in 2021, the many companies that have flourished during COVID-19 now resetting both internal and external expectations. New year, new market.
