Hello again the financial valuePodcast, which focuses on the venture capital of TechCrunch, where we think the numbers behind the headlines.
This week we had 75 percent of the basic crew available to chat: Connie Loizos, Danny CrichtonAnd Myself. Kate Will return early next year, we promise. We have also joined Menlo Ventures& # 39; Vinky Ghansan Which was a great addition to the team.
There was a lot to overcome. In fact, we had to throw some things in the end towards the end because of time. So, we did not get to US and China project flows across borders, Or China Lightspeed New Fund, But we dug the following:
The latest three huge investments of SoftBank. SoftBank will dismantle thirty giant checks in three companies, including $ 385 million in Fair, The company focuses on the car, $ 400 million in the treatment sequenceWhich deals with "protein movement" $ 500 million in Cambridge Mobile Telematics. That's what, announced $ 1.285 billion in one week?
An impending IPO between Pinterest. As expected, Pinterest being public. We are screwed on Recent revenue growth and timing of their first appearance. Frankly, I'm too fucking to read this S-1, and I doubt I'm alone.
The US Market Crisis. Recording this late on the day on 20, we cut the ring directly after the shares of US technology companies hit. In the projector box Fall under the IPO price Other players like SaaS Box also had spectacular results. Social status declined, with both Snap and Twitter falling, and the previous price fell below $ 5 per share temporarily. Pain went on, on, and on.
Chinese technology stocks fell at 52-week lows. However, it is not just US technology stocks that have problems. Chinese technology stores that have emerged from public markets also take their toll. Indeed, as described in Danny, many companies that have been going before are now testing their lowest levels in a whole year.
Leave for two weeks impending. To celebrate all this, this podcast takes the first two weeks of 2019. Mostly so TechCrunch can decomp into Vegas for CES, but also because after more than 100 episodes, we need to catch our breath. (And re-store the fridge with Red Bull.Dani did not yawn in this episode, after all!)
Next week we have a special holiday episode involving a cosmopolitan and always a guest. Past, as we mentioned above, we are out for two weeks. So, we'll be back as a group in mid-January.
Until then, thank you very much for the last time to hang out with us over the past two years. Chat soon!
