Welcome to our Monday Morning show! Here's what we got into this Fine Monday Morning: stocks, startups from the weekend, Do Kwon, and TikTok.
When VCs fund the thing you didn't think they'd ever fund
Alex, Natasha and Mary Ann jumped on the mic, with Theresa running production, to talk through the biggest headlines from the week! Today we're diving into deals of the week and the latest on Insuretech, Instacart, and layoffs.
Network isn't a dirty word
This week, Natasha asked: What does breaking into venture capital look like today, and how is it changing? Alex and Becca jumped on the mic to discuss this and start with a refresh on our latest op-ed: "4 views on unpaid venture internships."

Chain Reaction x Equity talk the Ethereum Merge
If you are into web3, the biggest news of the week in tech was not the massive Figma-Adobe deal. No, the leading story of the last few days - arguably even the last few weeks - has been the Ethereum Merge. Equity's Natasha Mascarenhas and Alex Wilhelm unpack the Merge with the hosts from sister-pod, Chain Reaction, Anita Ramaswamy and Jacquelyn Melinek.
Where's the center of the startup world? Depends on which VC you ask
Alex, Natasha and Mary Ann jumped on the mic, with Theresa on backup, to talk through the biggest headlines.
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.
Insightful, Entertaining and Energizing! 🙌
Must listen if you live, work or play in startup land!
Mary Ann, Natasha and the entire team do an incredible job curating the conversations that matter in today’s funding landscape with nuance, research and the kind of depth that only comes from truly engaging with the ecosystem they’re chronicling. Highly recommend listening and subscribing!
Way over their skis on politics.
This show is getting way too political and is incredibly uncharitable to anyone who holds an opposing view. Though I agree on some things and disagree on others, I don’t appreciate their tone towards those who oppose their personal political views. I really used to enjoy this show, but I think I’m done.
