Dear tech entrepreneur,

We know that sometimes it’s hard to keep informed so we have filtered down some of the best startup and tech stories of last week.

SaaS startups have been the philosopher’s stone of entrepreneurship driving high margins and recurring revenues but the market seems to be a little bit skeptical. Last week, SaaS stocks dropped by over 5% in a single day, not just a company but the whole sector. Scary, huh? BTW, if you are one of those, you may consider getting repriced!

Booming leaders. The 30 under 30 list by FORBES is always interesting to check out but if you don’t want to miss some of the most influential raising stars, QVIXOTE LEADERS have just published their own list with 16 of the most disruptive entrepreneurs.

Oh, and pure tech. While Apple has been presenting its new cheese grater, we got to know that Barcelona is one of the cities chosen to host a supercomputing center financed by the EU. Additionally, Google has updated its Googlebot. No more server-side rendering?

And last but not least, we recently launched the itnig early starge fund looking for brave entrepreneurs and great projects to invest about €100,000. We accept projects in a rolling-basis so make sure to apply now!

Record-breaking Q2 and app revenue increase

This is the Newsletter shared on the 8th of July. If you wish to receive newsletter faster, you can subscribe here: https://itnig.net/

Dear tech entrepreneur,

If the beginning of the week drives you crazy, you might be waiting for a new self-driving car. This technology is quite the present rather than the future and some investors don’t want to miss it out as proven by the Japanese startup Tier IV that just raised a humongous Series A of $100M

App developing companies must be happy as app revenue is up by 15% in the first half of 2019 compared to last year’s. The Apple Store continues to be the king with $25.5B spent in 6 months in contrast with the $14.2B in the Google counterpart. 

Oh, and if you are new to our newsletter you might have missed the 5 mega-deals that made Q2 2019 a record-breaking quarter for European startups. More to be expected soon as e-ventures raised $400M with $175 million going to its Europe-focused investment arm

By the way, we (Itnig) are growing our coworking space as you may have seen in the news. If you want to join our ecosystem of entrepreneurs and techies, just let us know!
