Here's a curated list of our top VC content from this week:
Microsoft’s $26.2 billion purchase of LinkedIn has been the talk of the industry, and one topic discussed was the price Microsoft is paying for each of LinkedIn’s 433 million users. We compared that metric to that of similar companies such as Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp.
We recently linked up with Brian Ascher, a partner at Venrock, to talk about all things fintech, including how companies will continue to compete with large banks, future growth prospects for an already booming industry and much more.
Reports have come out that DraftKings and FanDuel are in merger talks. Whether or not that happens (there is some divide over the reports' legitimacy), we dove into the possible implications of such a deal and offered an overview of each company's financing history.
News recently broke that Twitter has invested about $70 million in SoundCloud, possibly bringing hope for the two struggling services. Find out more about the deal here.
