Hello and welcome back to Equity, TechCrunch’s venture capital-focused podcast where we unpack the numbers behind the headlines.
This is Equity Monday, our weekly kickoff that tracks the latest big news, chats about the coming week, digs into some recent funding rounds and mulls over a larger theme or narrative from the private markets. You can follow the show on Twitter here and myself here — and don’t forget to check out last Friday’s episode that includes some high-quality Quibi jokes, if I recall correctly.
This was a busy morning, with lots to talk about it. Here’s what we got into:
- Extra Crunch roundup: antitrust jitters, SPAC odyssey, white-hot IPOs, more - January 16, 2021
- Facebook blocks new events around DC and state capitols - January 16, 2021
- GitLab raises $195M in secondary funding on $6B valuation - January 15, 2021
