Partner League Round-up
Welcome to Partner League Round-up #2
Hey! Hope you’re having a great weekend!
This is our second issue!
I always have a good time curating content. This newsletter format really enables this, and serves to keep you updated as members! As someone who is naturally curious about so many things, curation is almost like therapy to me. I also like to believe that it’s a core skill for building communities. If you have interesting links to share, whether you’re own content, or something that grabs your attention during the week, send links my way via email or Slack.
If you’re not a Partner League member yet, join us or book a call with me to learn more about how our community is helping members accelerate growth through networking, partnerships, and peer support.
PS: If you’re reading this with your Sunday morning coffee, reply with a quick unedited photo of your coffee or view.

All the recent acquisitions in the Shopify space are just the beginning of the M&A explosion in the Shopify space. With the recent IPOs and mega-rounds, there’s a ton of cash to spend and with the expected growth rates, it’s going to be an exciting couple of years.

Photo of the week
Ninots (cardboard figurines) burn as one installation of the Fallas festival is set ablaze in Valencia, Spain, on September 5, 2021. The Fallas, featuring a parade of floats and giant cardboard sculptures, was canceled in 2020 and was postponed from March to September this year, because of the pandemic.

Every local talks about Fallas in Valencia, where I currently live. They either love it and celebrate, or they hate it and leave the city when it’s happening. I can understand and respect tradition, but it’s difficult to reconcile why beautiful sculptures and art go up in flames and billowing smoke, in celebration, while the world suffocates. For many locals, it’s a meaningful tradition and important economic driver in the region. While I don’t love parts of this celebration, I’m grateful that travel and cultural immersion has allowed me to think critically, and develop a sense of acceptance and tolerance.
