Great morning and welcome back to TechCrunch’s Equity Monday, a jumpstart for your week. Regular Equity episodes still drop each and every Fridayearly morning, so if you’ve listened
to the program over the years, do not fret– we’re only adding to the mix. You can catch recently’s program with Danny Crichton and Natasha Mascarenhas here if you haven’t yet.
Unlike some weeks when the weekend’s crop of news and believed runs fallow, our current interlude was packed with things to talk about:
- Sequoia China and Starbucks are binding, which is specifically notable after the Luckin Coffee story came crashing back to Earth.
- A study worrying UK startups showed fractures in the EU’s largest startup market, measured by VC activity.
- It’s incomes week, with everyone from Apple to Microsoft, Alphabet, Amazon, Facebook, Spotify and Tesla reporting. Strap in for the hectic week. It’s going to be a lot, but should help us determine what has been going on in the stock exchange.
- Codota raised $ 12 million, and we think that its product is cool. A new pre-seed/seed fund has actually raised EUR50 million in fresh capital, which is significant given the international financial downturn.
And after that, finally, this essay from Founder’s Fund John Luttig, which I encourage you to read. It’s something that everybody is reading, and thus you should even if you don’t wish to. We chat about it on the show, however read it yourself anyways. We’re in for a sea change in the start-up world if it’s right. For good, or a minimum of up until there’s a brand-new leap forward in tech or technology item distribution. ( You can learn more on the concept of a SaaS slowdown here.)
