Equity Monday: What’s going on with $100M rounds?

Good morning buddies, and welcome once more to TechCrunch’s Equity Monday, a short-form audio hit to kickstart your week.

Equity was busy last week, so catch up do you have to missed one thing. We interviewed the CEO of Y Combinator, hosted a reputation with the TechCrunch staff digging into our favorite Demo Day corporations, hosted Equity Monday on a Tuesday, held a reputation with Niko from Primary Catalyst, and hosted a customer — remotely! — on the frequent Equity episode. It’s been busy.

This morning, nonetheless, was very virtually a repeat. The problems which were unhealthy last week are nonetheless unhealthy this week. Nonetheless, there have been just some points to go over:

SoftBank’s epic plan to unlock price in itself, one factor that patrons are cheering.
Uber and Ola are halting rides in India’s capital, a switch that we anticipate to see in further markets over time.
Cazoo, a used car product sales portal, raised $116 million, a spherical that caught our eye as a result of it was huge and seemingly incongruous to the data cycle.

In precise truth, that spherical was such an oddity that we ran a search of big rounds this morning on the current in its place of having a look at some Seed financings. We’ll get once more to Seed subsequent week.

Attempting ahead, there isn’t rather a lot to rejoice. We’re caught between earnings cycles and every conference has been cancelled or moved on-line. Oh, and SaaS valuations are falling. That talked about, we nonetheless anticipate to be exhausted by the evening on day by day foundation of the week.

So, let’s stick collectively and do our best to help one another. I look forward to starting the week with a novel topic for as quickly as; Equity Monday was efficiently born on the doorstep of the COVID-19 world. Nevertheless we gained’t get there with out collective movement. We’re in a position to all help.

Equity drops every Monday at 7:00 AM PT and Friday at 6:00 am PT, so subscribe to us on Apple Podcasts, Overcast, Spotify and the entire casts.
