Tearsheet Weekly Newsletter
2016 may have rankled public market investors but so far, money continues to stream in to our space. That’s true for venture capital finding its way to growthy startups and also true for users and investors adopting these new tools (see Vanguard’s success with its virtual investment advisor offering). For me, I’m still waiting to see what tech leaders like Google, Apple, and Facebook have up their sleeves this year.
