Welcome to the second episode of TechCrunch’s newest podcast, Equity, our venture capital-focused show focused on the numbers, people and companies driving the technology industry.
We discussed the potential for rising M&A in the tech space, with a special focus on what Apple and the other giants are up to (hint: they are buying things), how well early-stage investors can make out even when deals get tough, the troubled situation at Uber, and, of course, a comment or two on the improving IPO market.
(Note: The 1982 Tylenol incident was mentioned on the show today. It was brought up only as a historical anecdote).
