Hatch, a neobank for SMBs, launches with $20M in funding from investors like Kleiner Perkins, Foundation and Plaid’s founders

After his last startup, Framed Data, was acquired by Square, Thomson Nguyen began exploring new ideas. While an entrepreneur-in-residence at Kleiner Perkins, Nguyen interviewed hundreds of small business owners and realized that many pay hundreds of dollars in fees to maintain a business checking account. “Most small businesses are low margin, high cash flow, so they don’t have $4,000 just laying around,” Nguyen told TechCrunch. “We found in our analysis that micro-SMBs actually end up paying on...

Is it possible to build fire-resilient communities in a fire-risk state?

Laura Dyberg admits she was once one of those laisse-faire types who did little to protect her home from wildfires. She assumed fire crews would always be able to take care of her home, in the high and rugged San Bernardino Mountains where she’d lived for 15 years. But then she experienced her first large wildfire, the 1997 Mill Fire. She’ll never forget how it destroyed 12 homes. In the aftermath, her community blamed authorities for the losses — until they made the proactive move of creating a...

Surge in anti-Asian hate crimes raises fears in Southern California

For several weeks last April, Garden Grove resident Linda Nguyen didn’t leave her home. She worked remotely. She ordered her groceries and food online. She didn’t take walks in the neighborhood. What Nguyen says “paralyzed” her was not the coronavirus. It was the fear that she, like many other Asian Americans, would be physically attacked by someone who might mistakenly blame her for the pandemic. “The fear that someone would physically hurt me was very real,” she said. Linda Nguyen, who has ...

Jobless for longer: Pandemic hits Asian Americans hard

By Reade Pickert | Bloomberg Asian Americans who lost their jobs during the pandemic have found it harder than most to get them back. The 5.9% unemployment rate among the roughly 10 million-strong Asian workforce in December was below the national rate. But in the final three months of 2020, almost half of jobless Asians had been out of work for at least 27 weeks — a bigger share than White, Black or Hispanic Americans. The reasons are largely economic and geographic. Many work in industries par...
