Hope you all had a GREAT and SPOOKY weekend! 🧙♀️🦇
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 👀
Over the past month, in particular, we have seen a lot on content published around the Creator crypto economy: as Web 3.0, the metaverse, NFTs, and social tokens are getting hotter and hotter 🔥 investors’ enthusiasm keeps growing - and so does the number of creators who are leaning into their communities globally. What a time to be a creator!
If you’ve missed past newsletters or simply can’t get enough, catch up here.
Our annual Marketplace Conference is less than three weeks away!
For a deep dive into different marketplace models, trending topics, and how to scale a network effects company from zero to infinity, you do not want to miss our 2021 Marketplace Conference (online) on the 16th and 17th of November.
Jack Conte, CEO of Patreon, announces Patreon’s Series F with a short video going through the evolution and future of the Creator economy, where creators are finally going to be in charge and ‘the stigma of the starving artist disappears!’ 👨🎨🎨
Morgan Beller of NfX examines with Cuy Sheffield (head of crypto at Visa) and Micah Johnson (Bored Apes, CryptoPunks, and Aku and former professional baseball player) why Web 3.0 founders can’t skip the community building part anymore 🤗
Chris Dixon (GP at Andreessen Horowitz) and Naval Ravikant (Co-founder & chairman of AngelList, angel investor) talk about Web 3.0 and the revolutionary concept whereby ‘we flip applications from being closed-code, ‘corporations own the platform and users are the data’, to open-code ‘contributors are the platform and users own the data.’
TIER Mobility continues to lead the way in the global micro-mobility market with its recently announced $200m Series D first close 🛴 With a stronger infrastructure, higher capital-efficiency, higher environmental consciousness, and a high degree of innovation, we are convinced TIER will be the global leading player “made in Europe!” 🌍
With Warner Brothers 🐰 and Netflix 📺 already using Heritage Type, how could we not take notice? Heritage Type’s graphic design tool makes it easy for businesses and freelancers to create their own retro-flavored logos, packaging, websites, you name it! Give it a try 👀
