Shopmonkey raises $75M Series C to help auto repair shops streamline their business

Walking into an auto repair shop can sometimes feel like taking a step into the past. The handwritten notes and receipts, the clunky point-of-sales system and scheduling tools — if those are even there — can make customers feel like they’re in the 1990s, not the 21st century. Shopmonkey is trying to change that. “It’s been an amazing industry to serve that I just feel like has trailed modern times and modern services by a factor of five to 10 years,” Shopmonkey CEO Ashot Iskandarian said in a re...

Lessons in Falling Down

The longer I am employed as a professor, the less sure I become as to what a teacher is supposed to do. When students say, either explicitly or implicitly, "Teach me," I become confused, because I seldom feel as if I have anything to teach... I agree with the sentiments Carl Rogers expressed in "Personal Thoughts on Teaching and Learning" (1952). In essence, he contends that nothing of value can be taught, but that much of value can be learned. I suppose that's why I find teaching so unsatisf...

Welcome to hot due diligence summer 

Wow, that headline worked? A recent board fight at a digital health unicorn is a reminder to entrepreneurs that it’s important to set boundaries, even amid the dizzying volume and velocity of this summer’s deal frenzy. This week I published a scoop about how Bessemer Venture Partners replaced a board member at Hinge Health, after that board member invested in a competing startup.

Bessemer replaces board member at Hinge Health following competitive tensions

Board tensions at Hinge Health, a San Francisco-based digital health unicorn, have caused Bessemer Venture Partners to switch up its board director seat, replacing the original investor at the chair with a different one. Hinge Health co-founder and CEO Daniel Perez says BVP’s original board seat went to the partner who led the his company’s Series C round. The investor was recused from the board because they did not notify Perez of a new investment that the founder sees as competitive with Hinge...

Co-op raises $5.8M to help online merchants land customers for less

Ask anyone looking to sell online about their customer acquisition costs compared to a few years ago, and you’ll hear a tale of woe. Channels that were once a cost-effective ground for acquiring customers, like various social networks, have become increasingly pricey real estate. Facebook’s recent broaching of the $1 trillion market cap threshold attests to the fact. But co-op wants to shake up how online sellers find new customers, and it wants to do so with a spirit of collaboration at a disco...

Toast’s Aman Narang and BVP’s Kent Bennett on how customer obsession is everything

Toast has raised more than $900 billion and is reportedly valued at over $5 billion. But back in 2011, no one knew this startup would see such meteoric success. It had a few things going for it, of course — founder Aman Narang hailed from Endeca, where he was a software engineer and product lead with a reputation for being able to ship a lot of software quickly. But the ambitions behind Toast were big and complicated, and enough to give pause to any investor. Kent Bennett was one such VC, and wh...

The stoic resilience of Israel’s Tech Ecosystem – Welcome to the Middle East

This is a guest post by Kevin Baxpehler, co-founder and Managing Partner at Remagine Ventures At the time of this writing Israel and Hamas just signed a ceasefire. I wanted to take a few moments to reflect on what was going on in Israel. After “defeating Covid 19” and returning back to a new normal, all of us were back indoors (offices, hospitality, etc). But none of us stopped working, creating, pivoting or innovating – except when we had to run for shelter.  Sheikh Jarrah is not the rea...

Privacy.com rebrands to Lithic, raises $43M for virtual payment cards

When Privacy.com was founded in 2014, the company’s focus was to let anyone generate virtual and disposable payment card numbers for free. The goal was to allow those users to keep users’ actual credit card numbers safe while allowing the option to cut off companies from their bank accounts. In an age of near-constant data breaches and credit card skimmers targeting unsuspecting websites, Privacy.com has made it harder for hackers to get anyone’s real credit card details. The concept has appeale...

Father and son duo take on global logistics with Optimal Dynamics’ sequential decision AI platform

Like “innovation,” machine learning and artificial intelligence are commonplace terms that provide very little context for what they actually signify. AI/ML spans dozens of different fields of research, covering all kinds of different problems and alternative and often incompatible ways to solve them. One robust area of research here that has antecedents going back to the mid-20th century is what is known as stochastic optimization — decision-making under uncertainty where an entity wants to opt...
