Equity transcribed: Funding news round-up, a16z’s future, an upcoming IPO and more Lyft

Welcome back to this week’s transcribed edition of Equity, TechCrunch’s venture capital-focused podcast that unpacks the numbers behind the headlines. Right here we place the words of our wildly well known venture capital podcast, Equity, into Further Crunch members’ eyes alternatively of their ears. This week, TechCrunch’s Kate Clark and Crunchbase News’s Alex Wilhelm get speedy-fire on funding news from about the way. And mainly because they each speak so quickly, they got a lot in.

In case you hadn’t heard, Andreessen Horowitz relinquished its status as a venture capital firm and registered all 150 of its workers as monetary advisors. Kate and Alex dug in a bit additional about that story. And who is sick of hearing about Lyft’s IPO? No one? Terrific. For the reason that they talked about that and the implications of Uber’s imminent journey into the land of the public.

And ultimately, the Midas List. Does it matter? Why are we speaking about it? Why do lists exist? Who’s on prime? Who’s not? Who’s sad? Who cares? And additional concerns left unanswered.
