Equity: A podcast about the business of startups.
Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, Alex Wilhelm, Natasha Mascarenhas, and Mary Ann Azevedo unpack the numbers and nuance behind the headlines. We wade through the hype to keep you up to date on the world of business, technology and venture capital.
What's the next on crypto's chopping block?
Natasha is starting things off this week as a sneak peek of what's to come while Alex is on paternity leave. We have lots to get to, so shake off the holiday feels, and let's remember how this ecosystem works : starting with markets, a look at BlockFi and the crypto landscape, Pact, and Pipe.
Party rounds are either the dinner party of your dreams or the one where no one shows up (re-post)
While the Equity crew unwinds from Thanksgiving here in the U.S., we're bringing you one of our favorite conversations from earlier this year when Natasha, along with Alex's help, asked: Who should be raising Party Rounds?
Tech’s homogeneity problem
This week, Natasha interviewed Karla Monterroso, a long time leadership coach, racial equity advocate and the founder of Brava Leaders. We talked about her route into the leadership coaching space, but mainly sought to answer questions about the challenges facing executives today.
Good morning, assets are selling off
Alex, as per usual, is back with the kickstart to your week! Let's talk through the latest on stocks, crypto, Twitter, and good news on the startup front from Wove and SponsorUnited.
Pick your poison: recruitment or retention?
This week, Alex and Natasha discussed the latest and greatest of this consuming news cycle starting with some good news on the growth front from Maven and Alibaba followed by a deeper dive into the FTX fallout and tech layoffs.
Corporate comms for the startup soul
To get more perspective on the role a corporate comms team plays in both startups and public companies alike -- especially in light of the never-ending Musk-Twitter saga -- Alex sat down with two folks who have just that experience set: Kelly Boynton, senior director of communications at Gusto, and Keyana Corliss, former head of global communications and PR at Databricks.
My favourite podcast
As soon as Equity shows up on my podcast with a new episode I drop whatever i’m doing and grab my headphones to listen. Love the analysis, insights, information flow and the humour from the hosts. The best for VC/tech startup discussions
Literally, my favourite podcast!
Great info with thoughtful analysis whilst throwing in some good, honest humour and a sprinkling of journalistic cynicism.
It’s the only podcast I listen to the day it comes out...what with time zones I might be a little behind...but you get my point ;)
Keep up the epic work Equity Crew!!
The best VC & startup insights
Excellent podcast on current startup / cvs trends, the only thing I listen to every week without fail
