Listen to The Sifted Podcast on Apple, Spotify and all major platforms.
This week on the pod, we’ve got some juicy scoops — namely, the latest employee casualties connected to Gorillas.
More specifically, we dig into Street Fleet, a Berlin-based rider platform owned by the embattled speedy grocery startup, which has told its 100+ riders that it’s closing at the end of July. Many are unsure if they'll be paid what they're owed.
We also dive into the latest raises — including the latest climate funds that have been announced this week, including €150m fund Climentum and €100m fund AENU.
Oxford Quantum Circuits, which claims to be Europe’s leading quantum computing company, has also raised a £38m Series A round.
Next, we speak to Gini and Eccie Newton, two sisters who launched Karma Kitchen, a shared and private kitchen space provider, about the tricky side of running a business with your sibling.
Finally, The Sifted Podcast producers Tim and Georgina chat about festivals — more specifically, they compare their recent experiences at Glastonbury and Meta Fest, a festival in the metaverse produced by metaverse company Journee and creative studio DEPT.
How (and how not) to run a startup.
