Hey there and invite back to Equity, TechCrunch’s endeavor capital-focused podcast, where we unpack the numbers behind the headings. This is Equity Monday, our short-form week-starter in which we go over the weekend, seek to the week ahead, talk about some neat funding rounds and go into what is stuck on our minds. Today, here’s what we spoke about: Equity is on Twitter! You can follow us on @EquityPod
The COVID-19 pandemic hit
a brand-new, worse milestone over the weekend. What is ahead for the global economy is unclear, but the horizon is unclear for startups little and huge. Many tech companies in the US took Juneteenth off, limiting
current news, and with WWDC beginning today there’s going to be something akin to a Cupertino takeover for the next couple of days. You can just take some time off if you don’t care about Apple. Stocks are directing this morning, with tech shares testing new records. Mexico’s Heartbest raised a$2 million Series A to help establish plant-based dairy replacements, and San Francisco’s Acquire raised a$6.4 million Series
A to aid with its customer success service. Blue Horizon Ventures and Base10 led the rounds, respectively. And, finally, the Hey-Apple drama reaches WWDC today. Apple has actually indicated that no modifications are coming, however the company is in water that feels fractionally hotter with each passing day. What Apple can do to repair relations with developers who are more than a little concerned about the megacorp isn’t clear. For start-ups, the final outcomes of this scrap might really matter. Which is that. Equity is back Friday with more. Have a terrific week!
