Welcome back to the 24th edition of The Marketplace Snippet curated by Paola and Mathias on behalf of the Speedinvest Marketplaces & Consumer team 🚀
The Marketplace Snippet is a monthly newsletter featuring the most interesting content on Marketplaces that caught our eyes 👀

What a time to be a creator!
If you’ve missed past newsletters or simply can’t get enough, catch up here.
