Mileage Matters is recorded live at the start of every Drive Capital Partner meeting. We kick off our week with a discussion of the things that caught our attention over the past seven days. We’re going to begin sharing these musings in the form of a short podcast. Our goal is to give entrepreneurs a glimpse into how we think about the markets we cover (and more). We’d love to hear from you, and learn what’s catching your attention these days too. Let us know what you think on Twitter or drop us a line.
This week, we continued our discussion on the future of artificial intelligence and what impact it will make on various sectors of the workforce, from manual labor to the creative arts. We debated whether or not coding is indeed the next big blue collar job as Wired writes, and touched on how to navigate this growing tech-driven landscape.
Other topics included a few impressive stats on the state of Software as a Service (SaaS) companies, including the “candy crush of SaaS,” and the ways supply side constraints are affecting marketplace business models in companies like Uber and AirBnB.
Listen in below as we openly discuss the best opportunities of the week.
We’ll see you next Friday.
