Hello and welcome back to Equity, TechCrunch’s venture capital-focused podcast(now on Twitter!), where we unpack the numbers behind the headlines. Myself, in addition to Danny and Natasha had a lot to survive, and more to say than anticipated. A big thanks to Chris for cutting the show down to size.
Now, what did we get to? Aside from a little of whatever, we ran through: The fall of Quibi, and who lost money in the mix. TechCrunch has a bit more on the video service’s downfall here. The Netflix quarter, and why its shares lost ground after its report. The Quibi-Netflix stories show that it’s not smooth sailing
- in the market for online video. If Netflix stumbled, Snap soared with stronger-than-expected growth. The business still loses great deals of money, however it’s getting closer to sensible outcomes, and has great deals of money. We turned to a couple of media startups that raised, including$4 million for Stir and$2.5 million for Quake. Quake the podcasting company, mind, not the excellent FPS. Next was a handful of housing rounds, including the extremely cool Abodu and the rather controversial RVshare, which divided the 3 people about whether or not it was going to work out. We had some terrific reporting from Natasha to parse through, including her piece on startup hacker houses, and her report on a new women-focused accelerator class. Whew! It was a lot, however likewise very good enjoyable. Try to find clips on YouTube if you ‘d like, and we’ll chat you all next Monday.
