Hello and welcome back to Equity, a podcast about the business of startups, where we unpack the numbers and nuance behind the headlines.
We had an illness on the team, so instead of recording our usual Wednesday deep-dive, we reached into our recent archives and pulled the audio from a Twitter space we did the other week. In short, it’s a Friday-style episode covering a host of topics, but just a little bit late, and on a different day.
The Equity team — Natasha, Mary Ann, Maggie, Grace, and Alex — were not about to cut back on feeding you the latest and greatest from the startup world. (Oh, and we have a live show on Thursday, see you there!)
What did we talk about? The following:
- Venture capital rounds for WorkWhile ($13 million) and Alloy Automation ($20 million).
- Mary Ann’s reporting on Forage, focused around where its founders worked before building the fintech startup. Hint: Grocery delivery.
- Then we dug into the changes at Clearco, and what happens when founder dynamics shift. And we used the story to chat a bit about how the growth focus amongst young tech companies is changing.
It was a very good time. Back soon, so chat then!
