#CES #NYE #SBF #FTX #lol #Alaska Green Light Blog Welcome to Alaska Green Light Blog, here is the new story we have for you today:
Hello and welcome back Equity capital, a podcast about the business of startups, where we unpack the numbers and nuances behind the headlines. We warmly welcome you to the start of the year Rebecca Szkutak as a returning host who joins us along the way Alex is on paternity leave. We’re lucky to have her for a few months, so give her a warm welcome!
With it, Natasha, Maria Ann and Becca returned to the mic to wrap up the latest and greatest of this first week. 2022 has been a bleak, unrelenting storm at times, but it also surprised us at how much innovation keeps brightening this downturn. The beginning of 2023 was no different.
Here’s what we got ourselves into:
Some early highlights of CES, the annual consumer electronics trade show sweeping Las Vegas. Yes, we’re talking comfort pillows that are even more comfortable than you think, a smarter washing machine and a security camera for ridesharing. Then we dived into the deals of the week, including Doorstead and USV’s $200 million climate fund. Our first topic came into the latest development in the FTX and SBF saga. If you’re like us, so much has happened that it’s hard to keep track of all the twists and turns. But it’s also becoming increasingly important as Becca gives us a real housewife angle to consider. We’ll wrap up with a conversation about the layoffs that hit employees at Stitch Fix, Amazon, Salesforce, and others this week. We delved into Natasha’s latest feature film, in which she examines how fired talent is rethinking the risk of their next jobs.
As always, we’ll be back for you on Monday! In the meantime, you can follow us on Twitter @EquityPod.
