The public tech espresso shot is literally the cloud – TechCrunch
Hello and welcome to Equitya podcast about startup activity, where we unpack the numbers and nuances behind the headlines.
Last week, we said we had to be careful with public markets, and we weren’t kidding. It’s been a huge week for revenue – with notes from all over the place, including ad market and cloud spend. But this week’s Monday show was more than just an entry into the series – it was a live experimental show! Natasha joined alexander for fun, and here’s what they got into:
- Stocks up, crypto mostly flat after strong week of gains.
- Will Alibaba withdraw from the list or not? This question matters more than what happens to the Chinese tech giant. The question really belies a broader question about the ability of Chinese tech companies to access overseas markets more generally, places where capital can flow at a high rate. Given China’s economic woes, cutting off this particular liquidity pipe could be risky.
- From there, we went to Clearco layoffs, UiPath buying Re:infer, and Yes’s first closing of its new fund.
- And then we finished with a dive into Big Tech’s earnings. The essential ? These companies are too big to summarize, and without the cloud they would be in trouble.
So, what do you think ? Should we start living again? Next time with Equity-themed espresso cups that no one but us can enjoy? Let us know, and don’t worry, the Equity crew is back on Wednesday with a smashing starter show.
