Hiya and welcome again to Equity, TechCrunch’s venture-capital-focused podcast, the place we unpack the numbers behind the headlines.

This week we — Natasha and Danny and Alex and Grace — had rather a lot to get by, because the information quantity in early 2021 has been speedy and critical. Sadly because of this some early-stage rounds missed the minimize, although we did ensure that to have some Sequence A cloth within the present.

So, what did the assembled crew get to? Right here’s your cheat sheet:

  • As is Talkspace, the tele-therapy startup that you just’ve heard of.
  • Then there was SoftBank, in fact, which has its personal SPAC available in the market now, confirming earlier reports. Which makes excellent sense.

There are such a lot of SPACs and bits of IPO information and funding rounds to select by and canopy that we’re already straining the closing dates of the present to even cowl half of the fabric. This week that meant that we excised a bit of the present to a forthcoming Saturday episode that’s centered on e-commerce.

So, we are going to speak to you once more quickly!
