Hello and welcome back to Equity, TechCrunch’s venture capital-focused podcast, where we unpack the numbers behind the headlines.
What a week. What a ridiculous, heart-stopping, odd and packed week. I’m entirely exhausted. But, in much better news, all of that is great fodder for podcast and chat, so today’s Equity is pretty okay, if I might say so.
Danny and I chewed through all the things that we could not get out of our heads, like the markets breaking down and DoorDash’s initial movement towards going public. However in keeping with the genuine pounding heart of Equity, we also discussed 4 endeavor rounds and invested some time discussing SoftBank.
We were also a little tired, so come laugh with us and avoid taking things seriously for a couple of minutes.
Here’s the week’s rundown. And, yes, I did find out my mic in the end:
- The marketplaces have despaired in themselves, with indices falling sharply.
- DoorDash is going public! We talked through the company’s known numbers and outcomes
- Roblox raised $150 million at a $4 billion valuation
- Three low, or no-code start-ups raised money, consisting of $51 million for Unqork, $ 6.3 million for ProtoPie and $ 3.9 million for Gyana
We wrapped with whatever this is, aside from utterly funny and scary. We want you all a lovely weekend. Chat you Monday morning.
