Time for another round of… recommended readin’!
- Asset prices are more sensitive to very low interest rates than most suspect, by Fabrice Grinda: Another article that tells you to be sceptical about current valuations of startups. I seem to like that kind of article, quite a bit, right?
- The changes in the German VC scene, by Thomas Grota of T-Venture Holding: Lots of people changed jobs in the VC industry in Germany lately, new funds have been raised… and so on. Or, in short, things are changing.
It’s all in the books, man!
- Ex-VCs Launch Brilliant Bicycle Co. With $1.5 Million In Funding, by Christine Magee on TechCrunch: A startup without tech, in the US market. Is that another sign that things are overheating, at least over there? I don’t know. One bit that might be more interesting than the article itself, if you are not into the bike market, is the comment of Mike Butcher, editor for TC in Europe, below the article.
- Volo gives itself a new name and goes into new cities (in German), by Hannah Loeffler on Gründerzene:
VoloFoodora is not really a bike startup as such, of course. Delivery by bike is just one of the options their drivers are using. (And since it got sold to Rocket a few months ago, maybe it’s not even a startup anymore at all, actually? Definitions, definitions…)
- Why I won’t run another startup, by Arthur Attwell: Another piece of critical reflection on startups, the industry around etc., from a founder’s perspective.
So far so good. Let’s see what I come across next. If you want to point me into a certain direction, do that on Twitter!
