Enjoy our weekly recap before you head out for the long weekend. 🏖️ See you Tuesday!

This week marked the one-year anniversary of the murder of George Floyd. After a year of discussion (and sometimes, outrage) around Defund the Police, pressure on elected officials, and skyrocketing antiracism book sales, the country still experienced 229 Black people dying at the hands of police, a similar rate as 2019.

Here’s a look at this week’s top stories from The Daily Stack:

  • We looked at our data to see what cities Founders have been choosing to build their companies. San Francisco still takes the top spot, but other cities are flaunting their innovation-readiness. We predict where companies may land post-pandemic. Read more here.

  • Andreessen Horowitz is one of the biggest names in startup investment, but it is also carving out a bigger slice of the media landscape in tech news, through podcasts, newsletters, and the occasional tweetstorm. Learn more about their media glow-up.

  • With summer on the horizon and temperatures ticking upwards, we’ve got fish on the brain. We looked at the bustling industry of private seafood companies and learned that unicorn status isn’t only for VC-backed tech ventures. Dive in here. 🤿

  • How are you getting to know your customers? Chances are, if you’re not using the right software to learn what makes them tick (and click), you might not have enough to run a thriving business. We looked at the companies challenging Google Analytics in customer analytics. Check them out here.
