Chatting With TechCrunch On The M&A And IPO Market In 2017
Last week I had the pleasure of sitting down with TechCrunch for their new Equity podcast to discuss a variety of topics including rising tech M&A, the IPO market and early-stage investing. Many thanks to Katie Roof, Alex Wilhelm and Matt Lynley for including me.
Equity Podcast: Apple And Amazon Buy More Companies, And Uber’s Saga
Featured on TechCrunch on March 24.
Welcome to the second episode of TechCrunch’s newest podcast, Equity, our venture capital-focused show focused on the numbers, people and companies driving the technology industry.
We discussed the potential for rising M&A in the tech space, with a special focus on what Apple and the other giants are up to (hint: they are buying things), how well early-stage investors can make out even when deals get tough, the troubled situation at Uber, and, of course, a comment or two on the improving IPO market.
(Note: The 1982 Tylenol incident was mentioned on the show today. It was brought up only as a historical anecdote).
