This week at PrivCo was an exciting one, as we rolled out the latest updates to our database. Our team of engineers worked tirelessly not only to improve the look and feel of our system but also to make improvements to the backend -- changes which are sure to make things run a bit more smoothly. Thanks to every one of our Daily Stack readers who contributed to providing feedback that made these updates possible. 

Here are the week’s top stories from PrivCo:

  • We looked at the year’s IPOs so far and calculated how well they’re doing, post the initial hype. Has Robinhood recovered from its disappointing debut? Which companies flopped and which made it to the top? Find out.

  • For our Investor Highlight, we looked at Coatue Management, one of the most active and deeply-pocketed hedge funds turning VC upside down. We examined why non-traditional investors are champing at the bit for the hottest startups and who stands to gain the most. Read more.

  • Sports analytics is an industry growing 31.2% annually, fueled by fandom, gambling, and individual motivation to train utilizing innovative methods. WHOOP, for example, just raised a $200MM round for its blend of wearable technology and 24/7 coaching. Check it out.

  • Our team was curious to figure out who are the oldest private companies in our database and what made them successful. In an era of never-ending upheaval, what can the companies with true staying power teach us? Find out about the 30 oldest companies on PrivCo.
