The intersection of technology, startups, and venture capital touches everything now. That’s why Equity unpacks the numbers and nuance behind the headlines for entrepreneurs and enthusiasts alike. Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, TechCrunch reporters Alex Wilhelm, Natasha Mascarenhas, and Mary Ann Azevedo keep you up-to-date on the world of business, technology, and venture capital.
Are you feeling Disrupted?
Alex, Kirsten and Becca sat down to recap a very busy (and dare we say successful) TechCrunch Disrupt 2023. We're talking through vc panel highlights, the latest from Cruise, providing early liquidity to founders and employees and why Shaq can do what he wants.
Equity Live: Self-flying helicopters, AI and the battle of the features
We were live at TechCrunch Disrupt 2023! Alex, Kirsten and Becca took the stage with breaking IPO news, how Joby is all-in on the Buckeye state, growth in the Eldertech space and Writer bringing back nine-figure joy.
We'll probably retire before Databricks IPOs
Before flying out for TechCrunch Disrupt, the Equity crew unpacked the latest from Divvy homes, companies we wish would just go public already (we're looking at you, Databricks and Lime), the quick grocery delivery market and transparency in venture capital.
What’s more venture capital than space lasers?
This week, Equity brought TechCrunch+ senior climate reporter Tim De Chant on the show to talk climate tech, hardware breakthroughs, and why we have a whole stage this year at Disrupt focused on sustainability.
Equity Monday: Instacart, Klaviyo and the art of the unicorn haircut
Equity is kicking off the week with another look at the stock market and upcoming earnings before diving deep into Klaviyo and Instacart's IPO price ranges, Coinbase and India, shared satellites and why the Apple event matters for startups.
Who shuts down the shut down-ers?
The Equity crew is looking into Mentra's plan to help neurodivergent jobseekers, how SimpleClosure might be betting on the downturn, what's next for the Argo AI founders, Y Combinator's Summer 2023 Demo Day, and how the EU is cracking down on major tech companies.
Good crew, I actually LOL at Alex’s jokes on occasion. Generally informative content that has a good level of detail on actual numbers / datapoints. Worth listening for people in the startup world.
As others have noted, the virtue-signaling gets quite annoying at times. I don’t mind the occasional opinion and I often agree, but it gets pretty cringey at times.
A must-listen if you want to get caught up on startup news. The energy Alex and Mary Ann bring to the show is so refreshing and conversational. You can tell these hosts really care about the stories they cover!
Way to political
He actually thinks we will be under water in 20 years. Delusional…..will be blocking.
