Extra Crunch Live has taught us a lot. Of how Retail Zipline’s Series A pitch deck met all Emergence Capital requirements to how Coda perfected the growth flywheel, much to the delight of S. Somasegar de Madrona to Toast’s constant obsession with its customers and why its investors are obsessed with Toast.
And that’s just the tip of the Extra Crunch live iceberg.
But there is so much more where that came from.
Without further ado, here’s a look at what to expect in August:
