In mid-March, the US chip company Nvidia announced an eye-popping $6.9 billion acquisition of Israeli semiconductor company Mellanox, underscoring the buzz around Israeli tech companies.

Restaurant website builder BentoBox raises $16.4M

BentoBox, which helps restaurant owners build mobile-friendly websites, has raised $16.4 million in Series B funding. This might not seem like the biggest opportunity, particularly since consumers are connecting with restaurants in so many other places online — reading reviews on Yelp, making reservations on OpenTable, ordering delivery on GrubHub and so on. But founder and CEO Krystle Mobayeni said that’s exactly why BentoBox is important. “Unfortunately, the technology that has over time be...

PagerDuty seeks $1.69 billion valuation in its upcoming IPO and raises its price range, even as Lyft falters on the public markets

On Tuesday, IT unicorn PagerDuty raised the price range for its upcoming IPO to $21 to $23 per share, up $2 from the figures it gave previously.  This throws some cold water on concerns that Lyft's unstable tenure as a public company might bring the whole market down. At the high end of this new range, the company would have a market cap of $1.69 billion at its IPO. PagerDuty is expected to start trading Thursday on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker PD.

Harvard researchers say that Lyft investors will likely come to regret giving the cofounders so much control with so little stock (LYFT)

Lyft's power structure, which gives founders Logan Green and Josh Zimmer a concentration of voting power, "can be expected" to decrease Lyft's share value in the future, according researchers at Harvard Law. The dual-class structure means that Green and Zimmer have near-total control over Lyft while collectively owning less than 5% of the company. They could also retain significant control while owning as little as 2.65% of the company's equity, the researchers found. This could hurt Lyft's sh...
