hello, welcome back faira podcast about the business of startups, where we unpack the numbers and nuance behind the headlines.

marianne, natasha and Alex We’re coming to the end of another news-filled week full of changes, and since we do have staff chatting for the last time, we’re into the following:

  • Deals of the week: Alex wants to talk about slowing growth in tech companies, Natasha has notes on a bunch of new Mayfield funds and Mary Ann brings Wellthy to the table.
  • Next, we discuss pessimism in fintech, if it’s nearing a peak, and how companies like Petal are still moving forward despite market volatility.
  • From there we delved into AI, how it will impact certain creative jobs, and what it means for traditionally unorganized tech workers.
  • We end with a very Natasha topic: Accelerators.
