Hello and welcome back to Equity, TechCrunch’s venture capital-focused podcast where we unpack the numbers behind the headlines. This week we had another full house which made for a good time. Our own Connie Loizos, Matthew Lynley and I were joined by Renata Quintini, a partner at Lux Capital. Today's episode is a grab bag of topics, including some self-driving stuff, late-stage venture noodling, and Microsoft. So, this show hit on every topic I used to have listed on my OkCupid profile. First up was Zoox's epic $500 million infusion. The self-driving company is notable for its full-stack approach, and, as Lux is a long-time investor in the project, we had the perfect guest on hand to help us discuss it. As you can imagine, we dug around who else is working in the space, what SoftBank is up to, and why Zoox might need so much capital.

Live from SaaStr: The market loses its mind, bitcoin tanks, and when will Slack go public
Equity
access_time9 months ago
This week was a treat. Not only did venture capitalist Annie Lamont join our own Katie Roof, Matthew Lynley, and Alex Wilhelm, we also recorded this episode live at SaaStr, a yearly SaaS-focused confab in San Francisco. Happily for us, though not happily for your 401k, the markets took a massive dive and wound up bouncing SaaS stocks right as we were prepping the episode. Perfect fodder, if you will, for the moment. What the market's chop means in practice is that quite a few companies that went public last year took hits while this year's IPO list is just getting itself together. Will the market turbulence impact private-market investment? Lamont votes no, given that the upward swing was only so impactful. Scooting along, we noodled our way through the Big Cash Return Cycle, in which a host of tech giants may bring home hundreds of billions of cash. What will they do with it? Well, that's the new game. Will they buy a host of smaller tech companies? We tried to figure it out. All that and we looked into the crypto meltdown (sorry for the jokes), and the news that Slack now has a CFO. Which can also be spelled "IPO."
