Sequoia-backed Houzz scraps plan to create home goods in-house

Houzz, the home decorating startup backed by Sequoia Capital, has scrapped a plan that would have seen the company design and sell its own houseware. The plan, a pilot program called Private Label, was still in progress within the company, but given current market conditions, Houzz has set aside its hopes of getting into the manufacturing space.

Like Walking Through a Sonnet: A Serene East Sussex Barn by Cassandra Ellis

I often return to the piece my colleague Alexa wrote on New Zealand-born, London-based designer Cassandra Ellis. In it, Cassandra offers a poetic approach to interiors and the spaces in which we live. Your place, she told Alexa at the time, is “a visual and very personal manifestation of who you are… Your home should be your story teller—the weaver of the red thread and a marker of you and yours.” It’s a sentiment that’s all the more fitting now that so many of us find ourselves indoors, confine...

This VC says being a woman meant she saw the value in an early Pinterest investment — even when no other Silicon Valley firm could see it

Investors have been cheering Pinterest, especially since it surpassed Snapchat to become the third-largest social media network in the US.  But the idea-board company wasn't seen as a competitive investment in its early days, according to Benchmark partner Sarah Tavel, who appeared as a guest on Angel, a podcast series hosted by Jason Calacanis to talk about her venture capital experience.  Tavel said her firm at the time, Bessemer Venture Partners, was the only investor to offer a term sheet ...

DoorDash's food deliveries earned it a $13 billion valuation, but experts say its IPO plans amid market turmoil and a virus outbreak are a recipe for disaster (GRUB)

DoorDash, which this week confidentially filed its public-offering paperwork, could face a poor reception from Wall Street, business experts told Business Insider. Many of the other jumbo-sized, money losing startups like DoorDash that have gone public recently have seen their stocks perform poorly, and WeWork wasn't even able to complete its IPO, they noted. Door Dash's chief public competitors are struggling with losses and its closest analog, GrubHub, has a market capitalization that's abou...

Four Women In Tech On How Digital Voice Assistants Would Be Different If They Were Designed By Women

If your Amazon Echo’s Alexa weren’t gendered, would you speak to your device differently? According to this 2019 UN study, the answer, for many, is yes.

But what if women were the ones designing the voice assistants to begin with? Do factors like gender impact the way the products themselves are brought to ...
