Don’t use Sam Altman and AI hype in the same sentence
Hello and welcome to Equity, a startup business podcast, where we unpack the numbers and nuances behind the headlines.
Today we celebrate 6 years of Equity! Thankfully, it fell during the simplest, slowest news cycle we’ve had since the grocery delivery and WeWork wars began.
alexander and Natasha took the microphone to talk about:
- The M&A frenzy that includes updates from Qualtrics, Cvent and Mint Mobile. We are happy to see mergers and acquisitions, although we would prefer to see more startup deals and IPOs.
- GPT-4. GPT-4. GPT-4. What’s in a name and more of the AI world, including where we see companies rushing to incorporate new technology into their products.
- SVB collapse update, including what we’re looking for next.
- And what the Y Combinator layoff streak tells us about throttle reduction from late stage. (More on the trend here.)
A busy few weeks, yeah? Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter @EquityPod for live updates, and Alex will be back bright and early Monday morning with the latest.
