Highlights of the Week (March 25, 2022)
March 25, 2022

The Daily Stack is a daily private market insights newsletter by PrivCo, a private company intelligence platform. Read our previous insights.
Have an interesting topic you want us to include, let us know!

The Daily Stack is now part of the Substack community, a newsletter site that has become the hub for creators to share their unfiltered ideas via free and paid subscription models. One that caught my eye this week was The Unpublishable, a former beauty editor's musings on the alleged toxicity of the beauty industry. The author, Jessica Defino, saw a considerable uptick in readers after her tweet about working for the Kardashians went viral. The beauty of this newsletter (pun intended) is that it doesn't rely on advertising dollars from the same beauty companies it covers. 

Here's a look back on the week's top stories:

  • If money is power, then Apple has a whole lot of it ($2.7TN in market cap of it). Everyone pays attention to the moves, cues, and tone the company sets through its policies. Learn more about how its recent privacy tactics have affected everyone here.

  • Tencent is a Chinese conglomerate that has been perking up the ears of regulators in recent months. In a global landscape determined to crack down on Big Tech, this company is next in line. Find out more.

  • As we move through Women's History Month, we're checking out how 2022 is faring so far for female founders. In short: deal flow is up, but dollar amounts are down. What's happening?

  • What do British reality tv stars and the dental industry have in common? They both have an absolute belief in ceramic veneers. Learn about the dazzling industry of lovely smiles here.
