It seems everyone is on vacation right now. With temperatures in the 90s this weekend in New York and a heat-exhausted landscape for venture deals and acquisitions, many have turned on their out-of-office replies. Travel over the July 4th weekend was the highest since 2000, with over 2.5M people rolling through airport security. Spain saw an 85.5% increase in travelers in June over 2019 numbers.

For venture investors and execs who have spent the last few years closing deals at breakneck speed, this moment allows them to reconnect with family and friends. Hamptons' golf clubs are teeming with VCs who are unfazed if they miss out on a deal. For now, they’re more comfortable with fairway long shots over founder long shots.

  • Monday, we shared a guest post from our friends at The Current about Amazon Prime Day. The event used some of the latest trends in marketing and reflected current consumer sentiments on spending. Read more.

  • We’re moving closer to a post-single-use plastic world, with recent legislation and consumer preferences leading the charge. We covered the companies cleaning up cleaning supplies. Find out more

  • Fintechs have been hit hard by the tech market selloff. Find out how nearly half a trillion dollars has disappeared here.
