Hello and welcome to Daily Crunch for Friday, April 1, 2022! Have a wonderful day! TC Towers was quiet because we were double-checking every PR pitch for April Fools’ Day nonsense, and every PR agency in the globe was advising their customers to impose embargoes for any day of the year but April Fools’ Day itself.
This week, Alex and Mary Ann held down the fort on the Equity podcast with a very interesting episode that covered a variety of topics, including Instacart’s reduced valuation. Forgive us if we continue to listen to Rick Astley’s music on repeat for the rest of the day. Congratulations to the 900 people who attempted to deceive us into clicking on those hyperlinks. Christine and Haje are two of the most creative people I know.
P.S. Before we forget, TechCrunch Disrupt is returning to the United States in October with an in-person event. Come and play with us! Our twofer promotion code allows you to invite a companion along with you as well as save money!
