Missed the Sifted Summit — or just miss it already? No problem. This week we recorded the pod live from the event. Tune in to hear from Herman Narula, cofounder and CEO of Improbable, which builds technology to make large-scale, simulated virtual worlds. He had a spring in his step after raising a fresh $100m funding round, and slammed Mark Zuckerburg’s metaverse plans live on the main stage. From the podcast stage, we chatted about Parisian cultivated meat startup Gourmey’s €48m raise. We also discussed the close of SISTA, a €100m fund based in France that will invest money into early-stage startups with at least one woman cofounder. We also talked to special guest — and Sifted contributor — Tessa Clarke about her waste sharing app Olio and whether all startups can help with the green transition.
