We never know when real estate will get better – Technology Flow

Plus Snapchat layoffs, Clearco’s exit, and big changes at Y Combinator

Hello and welcome back to Equity, a podcast about the business of startups, where we unpack the numbers and nuances behind the headlines.

It’s Live Week, that is Alex, Natasha And Mary Ann A meeting with some of the equity family was recorded on Twitter Spaces. Better days have come! We also revealed that we’re recording live at this year’s Disrupt! Yes, so hang out as we tape the show on an opening day full of coffee and excitement.

Now, to the show notes. Here’s what we have in store for you:

  • Deals of the week: Stacked, which is taking on Twitch with a Web3 twist; Astro wants to help connect Latin American developers to American companies; Anker is building a BaaS platform in Africa.
  • From there we riff on Major changes in the Y combinator, and what this means for an early-stage venture firm managing more than $3.2 billion in assets. The executive shift went down in advance of next week’s demo day. It’s going to happen next week busy.
  • Then Mary Ann led the way for us Problems in real estate-focused fintech startups, they burn a lot of money. Naturally this meant we had to mention Better.com again.
  • And we conclude with news of layoffs from Snap and Clearco. The two stories are very different, but compare in layoffs, withdrawal from international presence, and promise to be more focused in the future.
