A $60M venture fund, some changes, and more startup acquisitions

Ah, spring is here in the Northeastern United States, and it’s not just the flowers that are blooming. No, startup deals are the highlight of the season!

Today on Equity’s startup-focused Wednesday show, we take a deep dive into the Multiverse-Searchlight deal, which reminds us of the Wonderschool-Early Day deal we covered on the show a few weeks ago.

We also discuss the latest Guesty funding round, which is both large and interesting; the Monad Labs deal that prompted us to try to explain the differences between L1 and L2 blockchains; and Cyera’s recent rapid growth. Startup Land feels busy again, the income is high, and it’s fun!

We end the show with a sober discussion of this new venture capital fund targeting growth rounds in Africa.

The stock market returns on Friday to review the week’s headlines, so stay tuned!
