Leverage, red flags and a changing business landscape


Hello and welcome back to Equitya podcast about the business of startups, where we dig into the numbers and nuance behind the headlines.

Alex and Elegance are back to cover the biggest, boldest and worst technology news. This week we are not recording on a Tuesday because it is a regular week. Although we add that Equity will be live on Thursday when we record our Friday episode. So if you want to hang out, make sure to follow the show on Twitter.

Okay, what did we start this morning?

    • Stocks are generally up, major cryptos aren’t doing too much this morning, and a Coinbase downgrade we noticed.
    • Backstage Capital is firing staff because it only focuses on investments in existing portfolio companies. With less capital than before going to black founders, it’s a shame to see a fund focused on investing in underrepresented founders.

A great way to start the week. We child. Chat quickly!
