Howdy and welcome again to Fairness, TechCrunch’s enterprise capital-focused podcast, the place we unpack the numbers behind the headlines.

This week was one thing a bit particular for the crew, albeit in a tragic method. It marked the final episode through which we’d all be collectively within the present TechCrunch workplace. It’s a spot we’ve spent a lot time in so we had been all a bit nostalgic. (TC is transferring places of work, nothing else is altering!)

Anyway, there was information to debate!

After Alex went by what he referred to as a “mid-quarter check-in” we obtained into the meat of issues, kicking off with Kate’s latest story on Madrona’s new startup studio. The $11 million that can be spent on spinning up concepts and spinning out firms varieties a mannequin that may very well be exported to different cities. In Kate’s view, there are just a few different cities within the nation the place the thought may work.

After that, we dug into two totally different items of scooter information (Boo!), particularly you can get a Boosted-branded electrical scooter for $1,600 or the brand new Chicken One scooter for round $1,300. You realize, in the event you can’t discover one to lease and wish to take up the upkeep and charging complications your self.

Subsequent, we turned to Away, a model you’ll acknowledge if we confirmed you its most well-known product. Away has raised one other $100 million in Collection D funding at a $1.four billion valuation. Positive, that’s an enormous bounce from its $400 million Collection C valuation however we predict it is smart.

After that, we needed to get to the newest from Unimaginable Meals, which is now sitting atop $300 million recent {dollars}. This announcement comes sizzling off the heels of Unimaginable Meals’ partnership with Burger King.

Lastly, we turned to the newest S-1 submitting from tech: CrowdStrike. You possibly can learn Kate’s notes right here, and Alex’s right here, however the gist is that this firm will go public, the one query is methods to worth it.

Oh, and Slack is pulling off its direct itemizing on June 20th. Get hyped!
