Summertime is seeing a steady flow of fundings, especially in the consumer space! B2C is even hotter now that hybrid life has become the norm, especially for anything for the outdoors and have a technical connection to your phone or subscription/recurring business model. OC is poised to do well with B2B2C between LA’s deep B2C & D2C roots/marketing reach and all the B2B technical engineering talent in OC and SD.
Also check out these M&A deals. There are some massive ones in the telecom space including $7B+ for Ingram (yet doing $45B+ in sales?) and Mobilitiefor $1.7B. Hoping this capital stays in the region and helps build the next versions of these companies as well.
