Greetings from mid-flight from NYC to Austin, Texas where masks are mainly in place and the rows are packed with excitable travelers, some from previously postponed girls trips and some babies on their first flights (no plane manners!). With COVID cases on the rise due to the Delta variant, and increasing anecdotal and statistical evidence of vaccinated people getting COVID, it’s unclear if we’re tempting fate by undertaking a full-fledged travel revival. Looking forward to seeing my girls though!

Here’s a recap of this week’s top stories from PrivCo:

  • The Global Chip Shortage is affecting autos, aerospace & defense, 5G, and innovation. With experts saying the shortage is not going to be resolved any time soon, how will we continue to experience the disruption? Check it out here.

  • For those of us who prefer interacting with software over people when it comes to negotiating the best price, there’s luckily a rapidly evolving insurtech space, getting us insured for everything from auto to pet policies. Learn more about the innovations in this category here. 

  • We released our latest report this week, this time covering the industry that saved us all during the pandemic: enterprise software. When the world shut down on March 15th, 2020, we all saw how well our in-house remote systems would work to carry us & made adjustments quickly. Find out who the Top 50 Enterprise Software companies are.

  • We looked at the retailers amassing major profits by nimble production of up-to-the-minute trends. Take a look at the Gen Z favorites that turn Instagram influencer outfits into big business. Read about them here.
