Hello and welcome to Equity, TechCrunch’s venture capital-focused podcast, where we unveil the numbers behind the headlines.
Here’s a taste of what we got into:
- Qualtrics Pricing of the IPO and the future of the main acquisition price schemes. This company’s path to public procurement has been a long one, so we had a lot to say.
- How Atlanta is Calendly turned a planning nightmare into a $ 3 billion business. This story was not only neat, but also worked as a kind of palate cleanser for the team.
- Rhinocerosis an interesting insurtech game, and how it’s pre-IPO pretty early on. Questions about revenues, the power of insurtech and public procurement impacting startups? This story had it all!
- Alex explains how Quickly raises funds fast ($ 102 million to be exact). More so, Fast’s story fits into a larger tale of online payment startups that have raised $ 1 billion in recent weeks.
- A boom in food delivery and restaurant startups, and why Danny is bearish on a plastic-free game. Natasha is for it. Alex confuses a business model with Spoon Rocket.
- Natasha explains how Flag isn’t the first company to raise millions upon millions of users with no known short-term monetization plan. His track on ClassDojo illustrates how a silent edtech giant ultimately turned its 51 million users into a profitable base. There is also a new survey of investors in the field of electronic technologies to consult (Discount code: EQUITY).
- TCV ‘s record fund, and an angel fund focused on women from Africa.
As always, it was a ton to go through because there was so much going on. More Monday morning, until then stay cool!
