Beamery raises $138M at an $800M valuation for its ‘operating system for recruitment’

Today, one of the startups doing just that is announcing a big round of funding to double down on its growth so far. Beamery, which has built...

E3 2021 wrap-up

E3 2021 kicked off with news about E3 2022. Kind of a funny way to start a show, as Mayor Eric Garcetti told the crowd, “we look forward to seeing you in-person, here in the City of Angels, in 2022.” Also a bit funny when the mayor’s video game show announcement has less confetti and Minions than his state-reopening speech, but that’s something for another post. It’s understandable, of course, that E3’s organizers led with that news. The 2021 show was, like so many other things over the past yea...
