Episode 521: A game of ping pong between bulls and bears.

hello and welcome back to Capitala podcast about the startup business where we unpack the numbers and nuances behind the headlines.

Fortunately, this week we were back in full force, with Alex Wilhelm, Natasha Mascarenhas and Mary Ann Azevedo chat and Mercy production handling.

You can tell from today’s list of topics that we live in a strange time. There are plenty of signals that the startup market is slowing down. And there are some opposing data points that paint a more complex picture. What is your own point of view? Well, read on for some data to consider:

  • Natasha gave us a quick update on the annual All Raise VC Summit, but she will reveal more at the upcoming show on Wednesday (stay tuned!)
  • Monte Carlo just picked up a unicorn round, worth $135 million at a $1.6 billion valuation. On the other hand, Bolt is laying off employees amid a correction in the larger startup market and possibly its own space.
  • If the startup news points in two directions, so does the data from the venture capital world. Bye Sequoia founders’ recession warninga16z just picked up royal ransom pour into the web3 market. Parse it how you want.
  • There were other news to consider as we work to understand where the startup world really is today, including news from Postcode and Ports – two newly minted unicorns, which recently told Mary Ann.
  • And we settled on what else can be drama in fintech. As Stripe and Plaid prepare to fight, Phoenix is ​​either in the fight or is about to be in the fight, depending on your point of view. What is clear is that the giants of fintech, which are increasingly intersecting with each other, will rub against each other. You can read more about this in denouementon Sunday.

Hugs from us and we’ll talk to you next week!

Episode 520: We think the founders need to have a heart-to-heart talk about the market quickly

This is our Wednesday show where we stick to one topic, think about the issue and reveal the rest. This week, Natasha asked: How do aspiring founders feel about this downturn? Inimitable Alex teamed up with her to interview Joshua Ogundufounder and CEO heart to heart on this current topic.

The question arose after Natasha’s recent Startups Weekly column: “Everyone writes their memorandum for the Black Swan startup.” The column looked at a series of memos sent out by venture capitalists to portfolio companies about the market downturn. Some were reassuring, some were simple, and others were as simple a vibration check as “Can you tell us your ARR and money spent in writing?” Pretty please?

To flip the script, as we do here at Equity, we bring in the founder’s point of view to validate these notes and tell us what it really means to be a founder. Ogundu spoke to us about what he rethought, the importance of honesty and what to do before considering dismissal. It’s not often that we have guests on a show, so when we do it, you know it’s going to be good.
