Hello and welcome back to Equity, a podcast about the business of startups, where we unpack the numbers and nuance behind the headlines.
- Deals of the Week: Allara raised $10 million for women’s hormonal health, Agnikul raised $26.7 million for its orbital launch technologies.
- Beef in the (leased) boardroom: WeWork is irked by Codi, which is hammering the well-known shared-office giant in an advertising campaign. Meanwhile, Anyplace raised more capital to fund its digital nomad-friendly home rental business.
- Plaid wants to get Paid: News that Plaid hired a CFO kicked off a predictable cycle of speculation that it will go public. Yes, but when is the question, and our view is not for a while.
- Finally, ChatGPT is online, and VCs are pretty darn bullish about the current AI wave.
In case you missed it, we had a great chat with a Crunchbase analyst earlier this week about all things Q3 VC!
