Hi and invite back to Equity, TechCrunch’s endeavor capital-focused podcast, where we unload the numbers behind the headlines. This time around we’re taping what we call an Equity Shot, a single-topic
program that we pull together whenever there’s a news item of sufficient weight that it demands we break our routine cadence and tape a little more. Danny and Tash and Alex got together to talk about the recent Vroom IPO and Lemonade submitting
to go public. These are topics that TechCrunch has actually covered quite a lot recently, so here’s a chronology to assist you keep it all straight: So you can capture up as you require to. What matters is that public investors have actually swooned over the Vroom IPO, pushing its rates and, today, more than doubling its value as a public company. It’s a big launching, and that bodes well for other gross-margin-light businesses– unicorns, even– that might wish to go public. The IPO window is quite open, it appears. And most importantly, we three disagreed quite a bit today. It’s an enjoyable program. OK, that’s enough from us. We are back on Friday. Make sure, and keep up the good fight. Equity drops every Friday at 6:00 am PT, so sign up for us on Apple Podcasts, Overcast, Spotify and all the casts. Article curated by RJ Shara from Source.
