We are glad to wish you a happy new year! It’s been a while since I last wrote this newsletter. It’s been a long time since I wrote it.
Before I get into the news, I want to say that I wish you all a relaxing and enjoyable holiday. Although ours was not great, it wasn’t a bad thing. It took me a while for my brain to get into work mode this week, so bear with me.
Friday was Friday and I published an article in DorstedHe collected $21.5 million in Series B.. This story was a further proof of how popular people are. Is that true benefitTechnology that is related to the real-estate rental market, especially when it comes to investing. Doorstead, for its part, claims it’s more that a full-service property manager company. It also assures homeowners it operates on a minimum rental.

GGV, an investment firm with $9.2 Billion in assets, invests in startups at all stages of their growth, from seed to maturity. It also manages investments in enterprises and cloud-based fintech companies. Tong’s opinion that downhills aren’t the end, is one of the highlights from the interview.

Lee also shared her thoughts about why embedded fintech is still so hot.
Tong predicts more down rounds in 2023. I’m certain there were many in 2022. However, Tong believes that startups that were started in 2021 will become less cash-strapped in 2023. I agree with him that it is not shameful to raise the bottom round. Ratings have been exaggerated, and any relegation rounds this year reflect ratings that are more realistic and easy to defend.

Blockchain is the future. Mercurio, a crypto-focused startup that has built a cross-border payments network, has now launched a BaaS solution, which it claims “unlocks a unique feature — the ability to manage cryptocurrency and bank accounts within a single platform.” A spokesperson for the company told me via email that the goal is to make it easier for traditional banks to open crypto accounts for their users and to give crypto platforms a way to open bank accounts that allow their customers to store, transfer and pay in fiat. / encryption.
