This week on the podcast, Amy and Eleanor are finally back in the studio together!

First, we discuss Klarna’s fall from grace… or rather, how the BNPL giant went from Europe’s most valuable startup at a $46bn valuation to shrink that to (a still not too shabby) $6.7bn.

We also talk about the latest in big layoffs — virtual event platform Hopin has let a further 29% of its workforce go this month, and healthtech app Babylon is planning on cutting 100 jobs.

Next, we discuss the latest Glovo drama. The European Commission has raided the company’s Spanish offices and its new majority shareholder Delivery Hero amid concerns that the two companies may have operated in a cartel. 

Finally, we check in on the latest with Pollen — the elite events company that’s being accused of missing payroll and not refunding customers.
