Startup Digest Reading List

A curated list of the top stories in technology, startups, and venture capital.

Huge congratulations to Jack McDonald, Arthur Britto (founder of Ripple) and the whole Polysign team for raising their Series B led by Cowen!
Cowen holds over $12 billion in assets under management and they are one of the oldest investment banks in the US.  With this raise, Polysign will empower Cowen to launch their own custody services for digital assets.
It’s a huge win for Polysign and the crypto space as a whole!
