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.
Is today's market sad or sane?
This is our Wednesday show, where we niche down to a single topic, think about a question and unpack the rest. This week, Natasha and Alex brought on Bessemer partner Mary D'Onofrio to chat about the public market slump, but more importantly, its trickle down impact on private companies.
Is the party over?
If you own stuff, I am sorry to report that you are probably poorer today than you were on Friday, and even less wealthy than you were the Friday before. Things are selling off and we had to talk about it.
Wordle's Blizzard of transparency
Despite the fact that it is a holiday week here in the United States, tech news was, well, as nuts as it usually is. At this point anything else would be a shock.
So what did we get to? All of this and more:
How many unicorns are just piñatas filled with expired candy?
This is our Wednesday show, where we niche down to a single topic, think about a question and unpack the rest. This week, Natasha and Alex dared to refresh perhaps the most common conversation in startups these days: the ubiquity, and resulting irrelevance, of unicorns.
Equity Tuesday: What to make of the Microsoft-Blizzard deal
This is our Monday (Tuesday) show, our short ramp into the week where we talk about the larger picture to get our feet wet. We're a day late due to an American holiday, and I can say later in the day with this thanks to my schedule. But, better late than never.
Friends with benefits of the financial world
Happily this week, we did not talk about NFTs, and I don’t think that we even said “token” a single time.
Great show. Wish they had more breadth
Love listening to this show. There is good banter and I usually learn a bunch. My only critique is they seem to exclusively cover specific kinds of tech startups. I wish they covered more on biotech startups.
Love this show - love the humor and snark that as an industry we usually can’t say or put into print. I feel the hosts share a little bit more “inside baseball” than what we usually get from the startup/investment publications/blogs. Dig the short episodes that I don’t have to commit too much time to, still get a burst of entertainment.
This podcast 💯 makes me a better investor, especially in my focus area of edtech + female founders. And so enjoyable to listen to! Great work and thank you.
