The back to school season has started, and with that, lots of exciting events are coming up. As well as some amazing ecosystem updates.
Atomico is banging on their ecosystem involvement - from hosting office hours to the monthly pitch to Atomico angels meetings for founders, becoming a #YSYS2023 mission partner and partnering up with Dealroom to close the diversity data gap! Lots of ways in which founders could reach out to them.
Serial entrepreneur Emma Obanye, talks to Vladi and Nektarios about when she started to realise that her life was out of balance; how she worked to change her approach to life and her business; the experiences she went through to get there, and how she is now learning to not restrict or control herself.
Your startup valuation, explained simply by Fred Destin of Stride VC. Another interesting read on how not all recurring revenue is created equal and the state of European tech valuations from Laura Connell of Balderton Capital. “Figuring out what kind of advice makes sense for your startup requires a lot of listening to what VCs are saying about your company, not necessarily all startups in general”
“The Palantir S-1 is a long and meaty read, and a pretty fascinating one considering the company was highly secretive, and often controversial, for so many years. It is also written in a very opinionated style: the newly Colorado-based company takes aim at Silicon Valley and is not exactly charitable to its competitors.” Read all about it in Matt Turck’s blog.
“As the world works to deconstruct systems of oppression in every structure, it is imperative to reflect on the field of racial equity and to ensure that the motives of those being propped up as the experts are authentic.” If you directly benefit from racism, should you be profiting as an anti-racism expert? Great insights from Janice Gassam Asare.
“(…) the best fundraise happens at the highest price the market will bear with the least dilution and lowest fees, not where 89 shares of stock trade 3 hours later. Ace read from a16z on IPOs.
"As we approach the age of quantum computing, it is no longer a question of ‘if,’ but rather one of ‘when’ this technology finally matures and ‘who’ will lead this emerging industry. The race is on—may the best team win.” Couldn’t agree more with Bessemer Venture
