Amidst the ongoing devastation to Ukraine, businesses continue to pull out of Russia. We’re at the point now where it's easier to point out the remaining conglomerates still doing business there (ahem–Nestle). Meanwhile, in the U.S., Russian restaurants are feeling the effect of diner's sanctions while Ukrainian favorite Veselka has become a meeting point for the community and its allies. Moreover, in case we had forgotten that there are multiple ongoing refugee crises, reporting shows that refugees of Yemen, Syria, and Afghanistan, who had previously fled to Ukraine, are now fleeing a second time.

Here’s a look back on the week’s stories:

  • Monday we looked at Big Tech’s response to the Russian attack on Ukraine. From Airbnb to SpaceX, companies are lining up to condemn the attacks by cutting ties to Russia. Learn more.

  • For International Women’s Day and our weekly investor highlight, we celebrated the female VCs reshaping the industry. Give them a follow here.

  • How does a company stay under the radar and yet earn a $4.1BN valuation? We looked at AngelList’s contribution to regulatory changes that contributed to its success. Check it out.

  • Yesterday, we looked at an ETF inspired by a middle-class, female consumer. What is the “Becky” investment strategy and what can it tell us about women’s purchasing power? Find out.
