Welcome back, this week Lucas and Anita discuss the turmoil and woe in the cryptocurrency markets as Bitcoin and Ethereum have been hit hard, a number of other popular tokens have been crushed, and crypto-related public stocks such as Coinbase and Robinhood have plummeted. What caused this bloodbath? Well, the main catalyst was the catastrophic explosion of the Terra Luna token as a result of the ongoing stablecoin issues.

In their interview this week, Lucas and Anita talk to Kevin Rose. Kevin is a serial entrepreneur who founded Digg in the early 2000s and is now an investor in True Ventures and co-founder of Proof Collective. His startup recently raised $10 million from Seven Seven Six and launched its NFT project Moonbirds, which has quickly become one of the most popular NFT projects. Listen as we discuss the cryptocurrency crash and its aftermath, as well as the challenges facing NFTs.

Episode 5: Raising Huge Funding for Self-Driving Vehicle Startups

Raquel Urtasun founded Waabi in 2021 after nearly three years as head of R&D at Uber Advanced Technology Group (ATG).

To do so, her company raised $83.5 million in Series A, with Khosha Venture’s Sven Stroband leading the round. Both will talk about Urtasun’s unique (and commanding) point of view and what allowed the company to lift the massive A-series.

She speaks with Darrell and Jordan about how to honor the company’s namesake, Venus, the goddess of love, and love your customers and employees as you work to bring the world closer through greener, more efficient travel.


Episode 513: Domino falls

Hello and welcome back to Equity, the startup business podcast where we reveal the numbers and nuances behind the headlines. Every Monday, Grace and Alex watch the news and take notes on what’s going on at the start of the week.

Luckily, we didn’t start the day talking about Elon Musk and Twitter again, even though the news wasn’t great:

  • Stocks have plummeted around the world. And cryptocurrency prices, which track higher asset prices, have also dropped sharply in the last day and week.
  • The CEO of Uber told his company that things are changing. No adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow returned. Hiring? I walk slowly. Capital expenditures? They will get tougher views and so on. During the show, we asked about the slowdown and how it may or may not affect the buoyant cryptocurrency startup market.
  • Neat rounds of funding from Pyramid, which raised $120 million, and Paymob, which raised $50 million.

Episode 514: Tech layoffs don’t happen to companies, they happen to people.

This is our Wednesday show where we stick to one topic, think about the issue and reveal the rest. This week, Natasha and Alex asked: What does the latest wave of layoffs mean for tech workers?

The question arose after Natasha’s recent Startups Weekly column: “Great Retirement, Meet the Great Reset.” In a work that included an overview of recent tech layoffsshe explored the idea of ​​employee whiplash and why this pullback moment is different from what we saw in March 2020.

The purpose of this episode was to humanize the tech layoffs we’ve seen across the startup ecosystem, from big, big names like Cameo, On Deck and Robinhood to B2B platforms like Workrise and Thrasio. As our article from last week points outThe common thread between most of these layoffs, according to the founders, is that there has been a shift in the market and a major turnaround in business is required. A pivot that hurts the employees who built your product after high demand.

Episode 515: How close are we to understanding what’s going on?

This week we recorded live, which is always a pleasure, which means we answered a few questions from the audience. If you want this version of the show, we have it archived on YouTube here.

For those of you who are more into sound, we will tell you here. Natasha, Alex and Grace teamed up with Julio and Yashad to throw a party, which allowed us to share the following:

  • The end of the iPod, time to think about technology trends.
  • The departure of Modern Fertility co-founder and the MARA round brought more money to the African fintech scene.
  • From there, he moved on to the collapse of Terra, the earnings of Coinbase, and the general shift in sentiment in the crypto scene.
  • Next up was Tiger and the drop in startup value.
  • And we ended on some personal notes.

And that’s the recap of the week – send us a tweet if you have any suggestions or questions. Forward!
